Statistics show that ONLY 24% of the global workforce is fully confident in their ability to read, work with, analyze and argue with data. Moreover, 32% of business executives surveyed said that they’re able to create measurable value from data and only 27% said their data analytics projects produce actionable insights.
H.G. Wells said, "Statistical thinking will one day be as necessary for efficient citizenship as the ability to read and write".
Data literacy does not happen by accident. Make sure that your organization has a data literacy program which measures the data literacy of your business and data analysts and has a formal and structured educational plan to increase everyone’s data literacy. A data literacy program supports effective data governance.
