Promoting civic engagement via explorations of evidence

ProCivicStat supports statistics teaching that enables students to engage with current social issues. We have created:

We believe that students should see the usefulness of statistics in understanding evidence, and should engage with data about important social phenomena, to support their development as active and empowered citizens.

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.
