World Statistics Day


20 October, 2010

For the first time this 20 October, the observance of World Statistics Day (WSD) will bring the world┐s attention to the importance of statistics in decision-making. The United Nations General Assembly designated this day to acknowledge the crucial role of statistics in policy-making, transparency and accountability.
The WSD was established by a resolution of the General Assembly in June this year under the theme ┐Celebrating the many achievements of official statistics,┐ acknowledging their importance for national socio-economic development and as a basic pillar of democracy.
The celebration of the World Statistics Day (WSD) will acknowledge the service provided by the global statistical system at national and international level, and hope to help strengthen the awareness and trust of the public in official statistics. It serves as an advocacy tool to further support the work of statisticians across different settings, cultures, and domains.
