The Ultimate Data Literacy Cheat Sheet

A handy PDF guide covering the core foundations of data literacy. How should you read a chart? What questions should you ask about data? Which average should you use? All this (and more) in a beautiful two-page guide.

“Just like people don’t need an advanced English degree to be literate, your employees don’t need advanced statistical knowledge and programming skills in Python or R to be data literate. Reading and writing skill levels are often defined by what people can or can’t accomplish in their everyday life—we must do the same for data literacy.”

~ Brent Dykes, Forbes

Addressing the shortfall

So, what can business do to roll out better awareness and core data literacy skills in their company? At ChartMogul we’ve been speaking to industry experts — data vis designers and business intelligence pros — as well as compiling a wealth of best practices and data literacy guidance. The result is a simplified collection of resources that anyone can take away, use as a quick reference and share across their company.
