The Scientific Programme Committee of the 2018 Conference, jointly organised by Statistics Poland (GUS), the International Association for Official Statistics (IAOS) Standing Committee of Regional and Urban Statistics (SCORUS) and the Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD), has selected three themes for the GUS – SCORUS Conference “NEW SCALE – NEW NEEDS – NEW STATISTICS”, to be hosted by GUS in Warsaw, Poland in June 6-8, 2018.
We live in era of dynamic changes occurring in various fields of social and economic activity. In these circumstances the role of statistics is to
- understand new phenomena,
- identify information needs in dialogue with users, as well as to
- adapt statistical production process in order to provide most relevant, timely and geographically detailed statistics.
Statistics Poland celebrates its 100th anniversary in 2018. Our history makes us think about future vision of regional and urban statistics. We hope that SCORUS 2018 will be the platform for sharing knowledge and inspiring ideas.
