Data 101: Data Literacy


Because Shift is committed to building the capacity of social change organizations to use data, we're bringing you Data 101, a social media campaign aimed at increasing data literacy by providing definitions to widely-used data terms and concepts. As part of this campaign, we are including a glossary of data terms on our website. Click here to access the terms and their definitions in alphabetical order. We’ll continue to add new terms to the glossary, so be sure to check back and follow us on Facebook and Twitter to learn more about the Data 101 Word of the Week.
