The first of our Covid evidence sessions for members and other statisticians, to garner opinions on the governments’ handling of the Covid-19 pandemic.
We will be looking at:
1.How effectively have data providers, government representatives, the media and commentators communicated with the public on issues involving data, statistical analyses and modelling?
2.How have different statistical definitions impacted how information is communicated to the public?
3.How well has uncertainty been communicated, including in modelling?
4. How good were the visualisations used to communicate with the public?
5.How has data being accessible to the public improved communication – and was data accessible enough for this purpose?
6.Was enough done to try and prevent information becoming misinformation?
