Statistical literacy in the wider society



A perennial ICOTS theme is our special responsibility to develop sustainable initiatives which enable citizens to lead and extend debates, in the media and elsewhere, on issues of inequality, crime, effects of smoking, use of alcohol, and support for societal preferences. This democratic imperative leads us to questions such as: How can we encourage people to want to engage in statistical learning? How can we contribute to subject-specific learning of relevant statistical knowledge? How do we enrich our understanding of statistical literacy and methods by which it can be attained and sustained? These invited sessions seek to explore and enrich a variety of effective practices and interventions.
