ProCivicStat is developing new methods for statistics instruction for high schools and universities that will contribute to young people’s ability to understand quantitative evidence about key social phenomena that permeate civic life.
Social phenomena are complex, and democracies need citizens who can explore, understand, and reason about information of a multivariate nature. Most statistics courses fail to teach these skills.
This website provides an overview of the project, links to data sets and data visualisations, future events, the timeline for deliverables, academic papers and project contacts.
We welcome collaboration! If you would like to be involved, please get in touch with Joachim Engel.
