Conference of European Statistics Stakeholders (CESS 2016)

DevStat participated at the second Conference of European Statistics Stakeholders (CESS 2016) organised in Budapest (Hungary) on the 20-21 October 2016.

The aim of the conference was to bring together European methodologists, producers, and users of statistics to discuss users needs, to share best practices in the production of official statistics, and to present innovative ways of visualising and communicating statistics, among others.

With the occasion of the conference, the European Statistics Day was launched and celebrated for the first time on the 20 of October.

Florabela Carausu (International Projects Consultant at DevStat) presented at the CESS 2016 the results of a joint research on “Visualising and sharing statistical narratives”, discussing the concept of statistical narratives as an opportunity but also a challenge for official data providers, and a set of proposals for module based narratives.

This initiative builds on the experience that DevStat gained through the technical organisation of the 2016 Visualisation Workshop in Valencia (17-18 May 2016), which aimed at increasing awareness of the issue of visualising statistics.
