Register for NatStats: Early Bird Rate Closing 31 October 2012

The Australian Bureau of Statistics (ABS) and the National Statistical Service will be hosting the third NatStats Conference at the Brisbane Convention & Exhibition Centre, South Bank, from March 12-14, 2013 and invites you to attend.

The overall theme for NatStats 2013 is “A better informed Australia: the role of statistics in building the nation”.

The conference will investigate this theme by exploring how big or turbo charged data (administration/transactional, web 2.0, international and emerging datasets) can be used to inform decision making in the social wellbeing, economic and environment domains, as well as looking at the challenges in using big data. The conference intends to address these challenges and devise strategies to overcome them.

Participants in the NatStats 2013 Conference will have the opportunity to contribute their ideas for improving the Australian statistical system.

The conference brings together both users and providers of data from government, business, the media, academia and the wider community, to consider how we might improve Australia's evidence base for decision making. During the conference, speakers will highlight innovative uses of big data to assist in decision making in community planning, infrastructure development, business and government policy.
