THANK YOU FOR A SUCCESSFUL WORLD STATISTICS DAY!
The first World Statistics Day (20-10-2010) was celebrated in over 130 countries and areas.
I would like to take this opportunity to thank sincerely all the statistical offices and associations, international organizations,
universities, civil society organizations and individuals that initiated, organized or took part in activities to celebrate this important Day.
I am also grateful to the many countries and organizations which have sent congratulatory messages to UNSD.
With your help and support, this unprecedented event has achieved fully its objective of building support and better understanding for official
statistics among the general public and the policy-makers worldwide.
This website will remain active as a repository of photos, videos, reports and press clippings on the observance of World Statistics Day 2010
worldwide. I invite you to send me photos, videos, press clippings for us to post on the site.
