"Ethics und Statistics": Regina Ammicht Quinn at the United Nations Statistical Commission 2021

Webinar on Feb. 22, 2021 on the subject of "Misuse of Statistics: Time to Speak Out"

"The United Nations Statistical Commission is meeting during an unprecedented time for official statistics. The coronavirus pandemic has thrown into sharp focus the need for trustworthy information to guide decision making and enable citizens to understand issues that affect their health and livelihoods. The impact of misuse of statistics or false statistics has also been apparent.

This event is a call to action at the national, regional and global level: where there is misuse of statistics it is time to speak out. The event will build on the webinar hosted by the International Association for Official Statistics (IAOS) on 6 October 2020."
