We make sense of our complex and uncertain world with information about risk that is often presented in terms of probabilities, proportions, percentages and other ratio concepts. Whether we correctly understand these risks—i.e., whether or not we are risk literate—depends in part on our statistical numeracy skills.
How well do you understand the risks of daily life? By following this link you will be directed to the Berlin Numeracy Test that quickly assesses your ability to understand risks.
The Berlin Numeracy Test was developed by researchers from the Max Planck Institute for Human Development in cooperation with the Michigan Technological University and the University of Granada.
