CARIBBEAN STATISTICS DAY 2016 CELEBRATIONS

THEME: Improving the lives of people – Advancing the Action Plan for Statistics in CARICOM

 

OVERVIEW

Saturday, 15 October 2016, will mark the seventh observance of Caribbean Statistics Day in the Caribbean Community (CARICOM). The observance was aimed at recognising the vital role of statistics in improving the daily lives of the peoples of our Community and in raising the profile of statistics and statisticians across the Region. The theme for the year highlights the endorsement of the Action Plan for Statistics in the Caribbean Community (CARICOM) by the Heads of Governments at the Thirty-Seventh Regular Meeting of the Conference of Heads of Government of the Caribbean Community in July 2016. The theme for CSD2016 is therefore Improving the lives of people – Advancing the Action Plan for Statistics in CARICOM.

Member States and Associate Members were encouraged to actively engage with stakeholders including, suppliers and users of data and specifically, schools, children and youth in general in promoting the importance of statistics to the development of the respective countries. Countries were also urged to recruit members to the newly formed Caribbean Association of Professional Statisticians (CAPS).
