"Data literacy must also include the ability to do something with raw information - to process it in some way. In an era where spreadsheets help us to make the grandest of decisions, we must have basic statistical literacy and fluency in the tools that allow us to make sense out of numerical data, not just words and ideas." - Clay Johnson, "The Information Diet: A Case for Conscious Consumption"

One resource Johnson offers to learn new things is the Khan Academy. The collection of tutorials on statistics is worth sharing and bookmarking - http://www.khanacademy.org/math/statistics.
