Swiss Statistics meeting 2020

The Swiss Statistics meeting 2020 will take place from Wednesday 2 to Friday 4 September 2020 in Lugano. The theme is Dati: da tutti per tutti? – Data: from all for all?

A call for contributions is open until 10 April 2020.

The 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development was adopted by the United Nations in September 2015 and con-tains 17 goals. Under the motto Leaving no one behind, the Agenda has universal value and addresses all nations. Responding to these challenges requires high-quality, accessible, timely and reliable statistical data in order to monitor implementation of these goals at regional, national and international level. Moreover, detailed data are necessary for making decisions on what action should be taken. This is a major challenge for the statistical commu-nity.

Leaving no one behind requires not only the availability of data on all social groups ‒ including minorities ‒ in all countries. The data must also be transformed into statistical information that everyone can access. The Swiss Sta-tistics Meeting, which will take place in Lugano from 2 to 4 September 2020, will focus on these two topics.

We invite you to share your experiences, your innovative projects and your research in these two extensive fields. Tell us about your success in meeting these objectives and the problems or difficulties you have faced. Only by pooling our knowledge will be able to rise to the tough challenge ahead.
