What is data literacy?
Data literacy is the ability to explore, understand and communicate with data. This includes skills to think critically about, interpret and make decisions using data, then communicate the significance to others around you. Even a foundational-level understanding will help, as a growing number of leaders expect all employees to have basic data literacy skills.
