The Swiss Statistics Meeting is the big event on the statistics scene. This year it is being held from 2-4 September in Lugano under the motto “Dati: da tutti per tutti?” providing official statistics specialists, private industry and academics with a platform for discussions and networking.
The theme chosen is linked to the Agenda 2030 for sustainable development adopted in September 2015 by the United Nations, which is structured around 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 community.
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.
A call for contributions is open until 10 April 2020.
