These helpful resources can reduce journalistic math anxiety

Tara Haelle

Few things are more frustrating, humbling or sometimes even confidence-shaking than embarking on a story heavy into research – then not feeling equipped to assess the methods and statistics.

Some reporters may even explicitly avoid reporting on research or may do a poor job when unexpectedly assigned a story because they feel their math skills are too weak. Others may be whizzes with numbers who love math but still come across studies that require knowledge or skills outside their wheelhouse.
