Texas Data Literacy Program

Data literate organizations and their employees make better informed decisions than their less literate counterparts, leading to improved business outcomes. The Texas Data Literacy Program aims to provide learning opportunities to help data users improve their data competency, regardless of their role within their organization.

The Texas Data Literacy Resource Guide (PDF, 311 KB) provides a menu of publicly available resources, such as publications, documents, and videos, on topics related to data management, data sharing, and open data.

The Texas Data Literacy Program learning series consists of courses related to different topics around data, including data management, data sharing, and data analytics. Videos of the courses can be found on DIR's YouTube channel, in the Texas Data Literacy Program playlist.
