The Art of Statistics: In the Age of COVID…


Risk and evidence communication expert David Spiegelhalter highlights data literacy as a vital skill in modern life. Through a variety of examples, he shows how the COVID crisis illuminated the need for increased data literacy, both for individuals and organizations, and the benefits of combining subject matter knowledge with data interpretation.

Spiegelhalter is author of Art of Statistics and Chair of the Winton Centre for Risk & Evidence Communication at University of Cambridge. His role on the board of the United Kingdom’s Office of National Statistics gave him an in-depth view of data collection and risk communication during the pandemic. He shares lessons learned about trustworthy evidence communication through this experience, including:

  • Inform, not persuade.
  • Balance.
  • Disclose uncertainties.
  • State evidence quality.
  • Pre-bunk misinformation.
