The Power from Statistics conference aims to foster a dialogue between the official statistics community and societal stakeholders in order to set out a path for actions with a 2030 time perspective to guide the provision of the ‘official statistics of tomorrow’ that will be capable of delivering evidence to the policymakers of the future. Consequently, the high-level speakers and panellists include industry leaders, academics, journalists, policymakers and think-tank experts.
