Statistical Declaration - Working Together for an Informed Australia in the 21st Century

In November 2008 around 460 delegates from the statistical community across Australia met for the first time at the NatStats08 conference in Melbourne.

NatStats conference participants drafted a Statistical Declaration to guide the development of a national statistics strategy for Australia in the 21st century.

The NatStats conference discussed three main themes related to statistics: Informing the Nation; Measuring the Progress of Society; and Environmental Information for Informed Decisions. Speaker presentations from the conference will be available on the NatStats website shortly.

The NatStats conference was hosted by the National Statistical Service (NSS). The NSS is a community of government agencies building a rich statistical picture for a better informed Australia. It aims to develop and improve a statistical system that ensures providers and users of statistics have the confidence to trust the statistics produced within it.
