**Principles of Data Literacy**

Why Principles of Data Literacy? This no-code course introduces the foundational how’s and why’s of data. How do statistics help us make conclusions from data? Why is good design critical for communicating data stories through data viz? What are the different kinds of analysis we can perform on a dataset? This course will help you feel empowered to answer these questions (and more!) and work with data with confidence. You will learn how to evaluate data quality, interpret statistical conclusions, create and read data visualizations, and analyze data responsibly.
