Hunt Library, Auditorium

How Numbers Can Mislead (and how to avoid being misled)

Whether we’re hearing about election forecasts or crowd size estimates, many of us feel increasingly distrustful of numbers.

Data visualization can help – as long as it’s honest and inclusive. In this special presentation of Coffee & Viz, Chalabi will discuss  ways to make data visualizations that fulfill both of those criteria and help rebuild the public’s trust in numbers and facts.

Mona Chalabi is considered one of the most influential people in the young field of data journalism. Often drawing data visualizations by hand, her approach is accessible and inspiring. Chalabi is currently data editor at Guardian US. She previously worked at FiveThirtyEight, the Bank of England, and the Economist Intelligence Unit.
