Data literacy describes an individual’s ability to read, understand, and utilize data in different ways. It doesn’t require an individual to be an expert like a data scientist or analyst, but being data literate means someone understands basic concepts, such as:
- Different types of data and how to use them
- Common data sources and which ones to trust or avoid
- Types of analysis for solving different types of problems
- Data quality and how it affects data use
- Tools, techniques, that help present and explain data
As businesses and organizations become more focused on using data to make accurate decisions, the demand for professionals who are data literate will continue to increase. Organizations should support improving the data literacy skills of all their professionals, regardless of their role or position.
