African Statistics Day 2017
Saturday, November 18, 2017
Addis Ababa

Every year, on 18 November, the African statistical community celebrates the African Statistics Day (ASD) with the objective of continuously raising awareness about the importance and use of statistics to support evidence-based decisions to support economic and social development in Africa. We are therefore pleased to inform you that the theme for 2017 African Statistics Day is: “Better Lives with Better Economic Statistics.” This theme was chosen in order to raise the awareness among decision makers, technical and financial partners, data producers, researchers, and the general public. It advocates the role economic statistics play in the production, management, dissemination of official statistics, and in the improvement for all sectors of the national economy as well as human lives in meeting targets of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development and the Agenda 2063.

African Centre for Statistics invites you to join in encouraging member countries to celebrate the 2017 African Statistics Day on 18 November, 2017.
