World Statistics Day in United Nations in 2025

The third World Statistics Day will be celebrated around the globe on 20 October 2020 with the theme “Connecting the world with data we can trust”.

The first World Statistics Day was celebrated on 20 October 2010 with the theme “Service, professionalism, integrity: celebrating the many contributions and achievements of official statistics”.

The first World Statistics Day was deemed an overwhelming success and on 3 June 2015, the United Nations General Assembly adopted resolution 69/282, in which it designated 20 October 2015 as the second World Statistics Day and decided to celebrate the Day every five years on 20 October.

The second Day was celebrated on 20 October 2015 with the theme "Better data, better lives".

With activities organized in more than 130 Member States and by at least 40 international and regional organizations and entities. "Unreliable statistics are as good as not having any or even worse, since you may base your planning on dubious statistics with deadly consequences," emphasised Director-General of the National Planning Commission, Tom Alweendo.
