The results of the study made it possible to answer the question of what the use of infographics is like, as well as the literacy of statistical skills. For this purpose, experimental actions were carried out in 78 university students of the Faculty of Education; Two groups enrolled in the subject of Statistics Applied to Education were accessed. The experience consisted of the students constructing infographics with contents, concepts and description of statistical tables and figures to later detect their effect on statistical skills. For the reasons stated, the study is of an applied type and explanatory level. The experimental actions led to the conclusion. The use of infographics allowed the literacy of statistical competencies in terms of the acquisition of skills for reading and interpreting data, drawing conclusions from journalistic texts, detecting comparative statistics between both groups (8.21; +-2.47) compared to the group experimental (18.21; +- 1.27) and (p_value <0.05). Statistical reasoning consisted of reasoning the text in relation to statistical reports; finally, in the statistical thinking competition, they were able to make inferences from the data presented in the infographic; however, the statistical thinking competence presents the lowest percentage of achievement compared to the other two, which we deduce that people lack in detecting sources of information and performing critical analysis, in addition to assuming with logical criteria in front of the data; however, it shows statistical significance comparatively.
