“It’s increasingly important that journalists have an understanding of statistics for their work,
and this was one of the clearest and most helpful presentations I’ve seen on the subject.”
— workshop attendee


Journalists have access to a plethora of raw and analyzed data, from voting reports to biomedical studies. Knowing the right questions to ask about the data is important, as is recognizing the pitfalls of poor data collection and analyses. Our statistics workshops for journalists, run by members of our statistical advisory board, provide attendees with a short course on key ideas and statistical concepts. These can be tailored from beginner to intermediate and to specific subject areas.

If you work at a media outlet, newsroom, or other and would like to host a workshop, please contact Neda Afsarmanesh via the form below.
