Celebrating World Statistics Day 2020

Every five years since 2010, World Statistics Day is celebrated around the world by the global statistical community. This World Statistics Day, we’re joining the United Nations in honoring the importance of trust, authoritative data, innovation and the public good in national statistical systems. Tapping into this year’s theme of “Connecting the world with data we can trust,” we’re highlighting ways the U.S. Census Bureau continually innovates and evolves to meet the needs of our complex world.
