The second World Statistics Day (WSD) will be observed on 20 October 2015. The theme of the WSD 2015 is 'Better Data, Better Lives'.

During the WSD, the global statistical community will showcase its achievements and on-going work that is helping to better the lives of people around the world.

Campaigns are taking up shape in many countries all over the world. Quite a few examples are already available online (worldstatisticsday.org). Many more will follow in the next few weeks.

The ISI encourages all organizations and societies to publish their events on the website https://worldstatisticsday.org.  Several events are already published on this website and there are several other creative ideas such as the muWSD2015gs from Japan and balloons from Russia.

The buttons with the WSD logo are a great success, they were already distributed at the ISI WSC in Rio de Janeiro and the JSM in Seattle. The WSD logo is available in 14 different languages (see https://worldstatisticsday.org/resources.html). More are forthcoming. To get the logo in your language, please contact UNSD ( This email address is being protected from spambots.

UNSD in cooperation with the graphic design unit of the UN will provide the logo in various file formats.
