NatStats 2010

The NatStats 2010 Conference was held from 15-17 September 2010, at the Sydney Convention and Exhibition Centre, Darling Harbour.

The conference was very successful and attracted over 460 delegates, 54 presenters and 14 exhibitors both representing users and providers of data from government, business, the media, academia and the wider community.

The overall theme for NatStats 2010: "Measuring what counts: economic development, well-being and progress in 21st century Australia", which explored drivers of economic and related social change that are shaping Australia's future development.

One of the key outcomes of the Conference is the development of a set of Conference Recommendations - broad, strategic objectives that will assist in setting directions for shaping a future statistical system that will be relevant and responsive to future challenges in Australia. The final Recommendations were formally released on 20 October 2010, to celebrate World Statistics Day.

Please visit the NatStats 2010 Website to view the Conference Recommendations, speaker presentations and photos.
