Anecdata is psuedo-data produced from anecdotes.

A compilation of correlated stories or other single pieces of information produced to appear like actual scientific data.
Video of several concerned guys in suits discussing why they decided to return their bonuses given after their companies when broke. Voiceover: "Many high paid execs give back bonuses at Big Bank and Big Brokerages."

The viewer might believe this anecdata was real data about bonus returns.
