getstats – promoting the understanding of statistics
Data is becoming more and more important in every sphere of society. This is underlined by companies like Google that have it as their mission to organize the world’s information and make it universally accessible and useful. Major consulting firms are acknowledging the emergence of data-driven decision making as an emerging global trend. This is a trend that is not only limited to business world. We are increasingly being exposed to statistics and data in our everyday lives.
The Royal Statistical Society is launching its 10 year campaign for statistical literacy on World Statistics Day: 20/10/2010. The vision for the campaign, known to its friends as getstats, is “a society in which our lives and choices are enriched by an understanding of statistics”.
