ECCB Joins International Bodies in Marking World Statistics Day

eccb_logoThe Eastern Caribbean Central Bank joined several international bodies in celebrating World Statistics Day on 20 October under the theme: “Better Data. Better Lives”.

The observance as adopted by the United Nations Statistical Commission is aimed at recognising the vital role of statistics in improving the daily lives of the peoples of the Eastern Caribbean Currency Union region and in raising the profile of statistics and statisticians across the region.

World Statistics Day 2015 was expected to be celebrated globally with local events organised by national statistical offices, statistical organisations, United Nations organisations and universities. In support of the celebration of World Statistics Day, the ECCB has planned a number of activities which include the launch of a statistical booklet containing key Economic Indicators of the ECCU and the member states; and a newsletter from the ECCB Statistics Department.

ECCB - logoThe ECCB remains fully committed to the further development of statistics in the ECCU and the strengthening of intra-regional statistical systems to produce and disseminate timely, high quality and harmonised statistics, particularly in the field of Balance of Payments, National Accounts, Monetary and Financial Statistics and Debt Management, which are key areas of the work programme of the ECCB Statistics Department.

This year, the second observance of the World Statistics Day, marks an important cornerstone for official statistics with several initiatives including: the conclusion of the Millennium Development Goals; the beginning of the post – 2015 Development Agenda; the ongoing data revolution; and preparations for the 2020 World Population and Housing Census Programme.

The first World Statistics Day was commemorated on 20 October 2010 in over 130 countries and areas.
