Sintesi dell'editore

It's campaign season in the US, and politicians have no compunction about twisting facts and figures, as a quick skim of the fact-checking website Politifact illustrates. Can data literacy guard against the worst of these offenses? Maybe, according to research. There is substantial evidence that numeracy can aid critical thinking, and some reason to think it can help in the political realm, within limits. But there is also evidence that numbers can mislead even data-savvy people when it’s in service of those people’s politics.
