Have you been confused by the language you're seeing in relation to COVID-19 data? We want to help you unpack the mathematical terms and data that surrounds us as the pandemic continues to disrupt life as we know it.
Over the next weeks, Kevin Hanegan, the Chief Learning Officer at Qlik and the Learning Advisor to the Data Literacy Project is going to help to explain to you the statistical statements you’re coming across.
