NatStats Conference 08


The ABS will be hosting the NatStats Conference in November 2008. The Conference aims to help connect users and producers of statistics from across government, public sector and academia, providing an opportunity to discuss strategies for measuring progress in Australian society and improving statistics for the nation.

Broadly the conference theme is: "Working together for a better informed and performed Australian Society"

Professionals, researchers, policy makers, practitioners and academics will be invited to speak on topics relevant to the conference theme. The conference program will consist of keynote and invited speakers – significant contributors to national statistics, valued and recognised in their particular field of work, and able to provide insight into measuring the progress of Australian society and the future development of national statistics.

Preliminary planning is underway and the themes and topics for the conference are being considered. We are interested in hearing your suggestions on topics for the conference program or perhaps you have an interesting or innovative case study which you would like to share with the statistical community. If you would like to share your ideas with us please email Mark Lound at inquiries@nss.gov.au or phone (02) 6252 6325.

Details of the conference will be included in future editions of Statistics News NSW and posted on the National Statistical Service (NSS) website www.nss.gov.au.
