The International Year of Statistics

The Year of Statistics 2013 is a worldwide celebration and recognition of the contributions of statistical science. Through the combined energies of organizations worldwide, Statistics2013 will promote the importance of Statistics to the broader scientific community, business and government data users, the media, policy makers, employers, students, and the general public.

The goals of Statistics2013 include:

  • increasing public awareness of the power and impact of Statistics on all aspects of society;
  • nurturing Statistics as a profession, especially among young people; and
  • promoting creativity and development in the sciences of Probability and Statistics

The Year of Statistics 2013 needs activities of different partners – Universities, Companies, public and private Institutions – on national but also international level. This website was created to support, coordinate und present German contributions within the international context. Already planned activities and events will be published soon on this website. To survey all international activities look at the website of the International Year of Statistics 2013.
