‘It is a hidden secret that some Government Statistical Offices are doing as much as or more for Statistical Literacy of their countries than Academics, Departments of Education and Statistical Societies. It is for this reason that the ISLP asked the directors of some of the most successful statistical literacy programs of government statistical offices to explain how they do it.’
