Better data, better lives: Celebrating 70 years of global statistical cooperation
Since its first session in 1947, the UN Statistical Commission has brought together senior statisticians from across the globe to make sure that all nations speak the same statistical language, using harmonized data. The goal has been clear from the start: getting the numbers right to help improve the lives of people around the world. And today, statistics are more vital than ever before. They give shape to our societies, point us in the right direction when interventions fall short, and show us where progress was made.
