Release of PARIS21's 2015 Report on Young Statisticians and Official Statistics.
PARIS21 initiated a statistical school survey to draw the views of young statisticians, stakeholders and future leaders of NSSs into the debate on the development of statistics. The survey focused on the students’ views on the profession of statistician and its role in the economic and social development of the country. The survey was also an opportunity to get young statisticians’ opinions on new areas that official statistics should focus on. Finally, current topics related to Open Data, Big Data and the Data Revolution, SDGs, and the CRVS were discussed. This survey covered the three Francophone African Regional Statistical Schools namely, ENSEA Abidjan (Côte d’Ivoire), ENSAE Dakar (Senegal), ISSEA Yaoundé (Cameroon), and two Anglophone regional schools, the EASTC in Dar Es Salaam (Tanzania) and the ISAE in Makerere University (Uganda).
