What can we do? create stats lit modules anyone can use teach students how to cite statistics and data embed in a program and create assignments that develop stats lit knowledge promote awareness of data citation with professors and librarians build awareness of stats lit elements in our data products (e.g., Roper Center’s iPoll, the ARDA, ICPSR’s teachingwithdata.org) incorporate stats lit into our understandings of information literacy more ideas here!
