The UK Data Service asked us “how can we make data and statistics more fun for young people?”. Our solution was to create a pub data quiz style game on Android and Apple iOS that is free to download, but crucially we can add new quizzes too through a content management system.
We launched the Data Quiz App in December 2016 with quizzes focused on countries around the world e.g. United Kingdom in numbers and wherever possible we use open data sources such as the World Bank and Eurofound. We also quote the source helping people to understand that it’s important to challenge data and understand how it was captured.
Download the quiz app and see how well you know your own country.
