This year we celebrate on 20 October 2020 the third World Statistics Day (WSD).

The first WSD was celebrated on 20 October 2010 with the topic Service, professionalism, integrity celebrating the many contributions and achievements of official statistics. Later on, in June 2015, the United Nations (UN) General Assembly adopted a resolution, in which 20 October 2015 was designated as the second WSD, with the theme Better data, better lives; moreover, it was decided to celebrate the WSD every five years on 20 October.

The WSD 2020 was launched by the UN Statistical Commission at the 51st Session, and will be commemorated around the world under the theme Connecting the world with data we can trust, giving head to the importance of trust on reliable data in official statistics.
