Although nowadays statistics are widely disseminated by means of the various media as well as through other modes, it is to be observed that quite a number of statistical users lack the skills to fully tap the potential of data, both by way of usage and for analytical purposes.
The National Statistics Office, in collaboration with the University of Hagen (Germany) and with Statistics Finland, has prepared this eCourse in statistics, with the clear objective of fostering statistical literacy among the local and international community of statistical users.
This course is primarily intended for young adults attending post-secondary and the early stages of university courses. However, special care has been taken to write the chapters in plain language, so that the course may be understood by, and be of benefit to, a wider audience including general users.
We recommend that users follow the logical sequence of the chapters in order to attain a comprehension of basic statistical concepts and examples. Nevertheless, specific chapters have been designed as self-contained steps in statistical literacy.
