Abstract: Paper from TheMHS Conference 2016 Book of Proceedings: People. Authenticity Starts in the Heart. The Conference was held in Auckland, New Zealand 23 - 26 August 2016.

This paper discusses integrity in relation to data and information. It provides a conceptual overview of integrity and then gives five practical examples of where a lack of integrity in the way information is presented can be misleading. These five ways are: non-intuitive presentations, lack of confidence intervals, statistically misleading presentations, correlations and omitting relevant information.
