What is an Anecdotal Evidence?

Anecdotal evidence is a narrative relayed by one person to another. It can take several forms, ranging from product reviews to hearsay. It’s usually testimony or a brief description of a claim’s veracity or usefulness. It is a factual claim based solely on personal observation and gathered in a non-systematic or casual manner.

Witness statements in a court of law are anecdotal evidence.

For example: A lady told the police officer, ‘she was with her friend and friend’s daughter, suddenly a man came and shoot girl and my friend then shoot himself in head. They all died instantly.
