Statistical literacy: it’s all in the communication

The Office for Statistics Regulation (OSR) runs seminars for analysts, which:

  • share insights from their regulatory work

Their next seminar is about statistical literacy and communicating statistics. The online seminar will take place on Tuesday 20 June at 12:05pm.

The seminar will:

  • share findings from OSR’s recent research on statistical literacy
  • explain how these findings about statistical literacy have influenced OSR’s views on how statistics should be communicated

Guests include David Freeman from the Office for National Statistics (ONS) and Anna Lawlor, journalist and creator of the BBC programme Typical!.
