A Fast-Evolving Landscape For Official Statistics: How To Respond To The Challenges?

In April 2022, during its annual Conference, the IAOS has formally established the “Krakow Working Group” whose aim is to contribute to the collective reflection on the challenges that our “datafied” societies pose to Official Statistics.

The SJIAOS is launching a virtual discussion on the issues raised in the editorial. The main points arising from this discussion will constitute useful inputs to the deliberations of the Group.

The Krakow Working Group will report on advancement of its work at the IAOS Conference in Zambia in April 2023 and the ISI Congress in Ottawa in July 2023.  It is expected that the Group will be able to present recommendations to be widely disseminated in the second half of 2023.
