Why do we need to talk about data culture?
Public statistics is more than just the application of statistical methods. In this workshop, you will become familiar with how different societal interests influence public statistics and how, in turn, information shapes public discourse.
In this workshop, you will gain a basic understanding of data literacy and data culture, not only for data professionals but for all types of users of data and statistics. We will explore the questions of how conventions are at the heart of co-production of statistics and society — and what decision-making processes drive them. We will approach the answer by taking concrete case studies and questions from the current political landscape and try to answer them with the best possible quantifications.
We aim for a broad discussion and invite students, researchers & official statisticians alike to join the discourse.
