Training material title
Making Sense of Statistics
Brief description and comments

"This guide is not meant to be a lesson in statistics but a source of questions you can ask and pitfalls to avoid. Knowing something about statistics can help you test and debunk arguments and get closer to working out what the figures might be telling us."

The document is a useful resource on the general topic of statistical literacy, which could be useful in NSIs either for the development of staff capacities, or as a reference when designing strategies for dissemination and communication with external clients.
