Working for a society in which our lives and choices are enriched by an understanding of statistics
What others are saying...
Professor Hans Rosling, Co-founder and Chairman of the Gapminder Foundation (and Presenter of 'The Joy of Stats')
"My basic idea is that the world has changed so much, what people need isn't more data but a new mindset ...countries and corporations alike need to adopt that same data-driven understanding of the world if they are to make sense of the changes we are experiencing in this new century and the opportunities and challenges that lie ahead"
Numbers are everywhere. But mostly we don't really get what they mean, even when they're key to the important choices we make in our lives.
The getstats campaign is about turning this around – giving everyone the skills and confidence to use numbers well.
Otherwise as individuals and as a society we'll just keep missing out.
