Gartner rates poor data literacy as one of the top roadblocks to creating a data-driven culture. Only 21% of the global workforce is fully confident in their data literacy skills (Qlik), and that shouldn’t come as a surprise when you think of how few are formally trained to interpret graphs, charts, and statistics. In fact, only 10% of high schoolers complete a statistics course (Freakonomics).
