Data Management and Statistics Branch Update

DMSB Observes the First World Statistics Day!

The date October 20, 2010, was chosen as World Statistics Day, since years ending in “0” have always been important in official statistics. DTBE’s Data Management and Statistics Branch (DMSB) observed this first World Statistics Day by honoring the statisticians behind the statistics: Michael Chen, Andrew Hill, and Nong Shang.

“The notion of a global professional statistical family that transcends political, economic, and cultural differences among countries is perhaps the biggest achievement of all,” said UN Statistics Division Director Paul Cheung, in his message for World Statistics Day. “The celebration of World Statistics Day will acknowledge the service provided by the global statistical system at the national and international level, and we 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,” he said.

Ban Ki-Moon, Secretary-General of the United Nations, in his message on World Statistics Day, 20-10-2010, said, “On this first World Statistics Day I encourage the international community to work with the United Nations to enable all countries to meet their statistical needs.”
