“Statistics Communication and (in)numeracy” reading group
In this reading group we focus on literature on the wide topic of statistics communication and (in)numeracy. Meetings take place online via MS Teams on Fridays, 13.00-14.00h. At each meeting, two participants present a scientific article on the topic. The focus is on the research methods and the important findings. Other participants can read these papers as a preparation, but this is not mandatory.
If you would like to join the reading group, please contact me via s.j.w.willems[at]fsw.leidenuniv.nl.
