Resources for the General Public

In this section we will set out information and resources to help the public generally find out more about statistics and explore what they mean for them. Issues like money, life expectancy and understanding the society we live in and the world around us can all be informed by understanding statistics. The links below will guide you to resources that will improve your statistical knowledge. 
Glossary - A guide to technical statistical terms and how to make sense of them.

Reading - There are many books that can give an in-depth look into the world of stats and data.
