27 Data Visualizations to Gain Insight into Global Literacy

Learn about the complexities and nuances of literacy rates around the world through this gallery of visualizations created in Tableau Public.

International Literacy Day was first celebrated in 1967 by UNESCO to remind the public of the importance of literacy as a human right. Literacy can range from being able to read and write your language to being able to see and understand data. Tableau is helping close the data literacy gap by enabling 10 million people by 2027 with free data skills resources and providing free software and training to students and teachers in higher education. To learn more about how Tableau is making a difference, visit our Data Skills 10 Million and Tableau Academic Programs home pages.
