Risk and Evidence Communication

How sure are we about what we do and do not know? As our lives are increasingly quantified, we know more about the risks that we face, but we also know more about where evidence is lacking or uncertain.  What visual, numerical or analogical tools can (1) help people to get a sense of the evidence and its implications, and (2) what is the impact on informed decision-making? The Risk and Evidence Communication group researches ways to communicate about evidence to improve understanding of what is known and to help people get a better sense of what is not, and why.
