Statistics in everyday life

Today statistics is under everyone's eye: while newspapers, magazines and other media are crammed with statistical data, the common citizen is often unequipped to understand their meaning and to judge the quality of statistical information.
To draw attention to the importance of being statistically literate, we will publish in this area comments on statistical information given in the media and will report relevant initiatives that contribute to improve understanding of statistical information.

"Statistics of All": video-conferences on-line

The meetings on the statistics in the daily life of the project "Statistics of all: statistical literacy in the information society"  have been finished. The project has been elaborated by Cirdis of Perugia and by the Department of Statistics of the University of Perugia and funded by the MIUR (Ministry of Education, University and Research) within the initiatives for spreading scientific literacy. 

We thank all for having participated in the lectures and we  notice  that the materials and the video recordings are available in this section of the site. 

"Does the Italian Postal Service make us close to each other?"

Cirdis members investigated about the time employed by the correspondence for getting to addressees. Read the description of the project and download data. (In Italian) 

If you have a newspaper article to signal and comment, if you want to make known an initiative or you have a topic on "statistics in everyday life" that  you would like to bring to the attention, please subscribe the Forum-CIRDIS.
