World Statistics Day

World Statistics Day is celebrated every five years. It was celebrated for the first time on 20 October 2010. It honors the work of George Boole (2 November 1815 – 8 December 1864) whose application of the principles of logic as a form of algebra underpins modern computer science.

The 2020 World Statistics Day Theme is Connecting the World with Data we can Trust and the forum includes such topics as Misuse of Statistics: Time to Speak out.
