quantitative literacy, public issues
In reply to Kira Hamman's discussion of my piece, "Rethinking the Numerate Citizen: Quantitative Literacy and Public Issues," I clarify that my argument is intended to apply only to public issues. I argue that problems requiring personal knowledge/expertise often benefit from quantitative literacy while describing the features of public issues that constrain the role of quantitative literacy.
