Data literacy is the ability to read, understand, work with, analyze, and argue with data. It is also the ability to derive meaningful information from data. Data literacy is not simply the ability to read text since it requires quantitative and analytical skills (for example: mathematical and statistical) involving reading and understanding data. Hence, with increased data literacy, one will be able to produce more insightful and evidence-based stories.
