This is a preprint version of the report (79 page PDF) I have been working on over the last number of months for the Assistant Deputy Minister (Data, Innovation and Analytics) (ADM(DIA)) for the Department of National Defence (DND) and the Canadian Armed Forces (CAF). It's similar to other reports I've done for various departments in the past, but I've been able to obtain approval to make this work public (changing tgimes and all that). It's a comprehensive analysis opf the concept of data literacy, descrivbing the overall competencies involved, methods for assessing data literacy, and methods for enhancing data literacy. I am sensitive to all the flaws in this report, but hope nonetheless that it will help people well beyond its original intended audience. I expect the citable version of the report to be added to NRC's publications archive (NPARC) beginning what I hope will be the regular publication of such reports by NRC staff, where applicable.
