World Statistics Day 2015: European Union initiatives

UN World Statistics Day is 20 October 2015. Among many international events is the release of the new wave of World’s Women 2015: trends and statistics. European Union initiatives are explained in this Eurostat release. Director General of Eurostat, Dr. Walter Radermacher, said that “Modern democratic societies rely on a solid basis of reliable and objective statistics to function properly. Decision-makers at EU level, in Member States, in local governments and in business need statistics to make their decisions. But in a democracy all citizens need statistics, as they are essential to evaluate the performance of decision-makers. This is the invaluable role of European official statistics.” For research data support at the EUI, please visit the Data Services page.
