Swiss Days of Official Statistics 2017

The Swiss Days of Official Statistics (SST) has a long tradition and it is the largest annual meeting of statisticians of the public administration organized by the Swiss Statistical SSociety (SSS) in cooperation with the Swiss Federal Statistical Office (SFSO) and the Swiss Conference of regional statistical offices (CORSTAT). The lectures and discussions address current challenges, new developments and methodological questions.

The Swiss Days of Official Statistics 2017 will be held near Frauenfeld on 20th and 21st of November 2017. The former monastery Kartause Ittingen, with its truly gorgeous location and light-flooded rooms offers the perfect prerequisite for an inspiring and lively exchange with experts from various departments.

Prepared for the future?
Official statistics rise to the challenge.

What changes are taking place in official statistics today? Increasing complexity, new challenges, e.g. digitalisation, big data, resources or users' ever-changing needs? What new opportunities and possibilities are now open to official statistics? As stakeholders of official statistics, how do we set ourselves up for the future? How can we ensure that we carry out our mandate to the best of our ability and optimise the resources available to us?

Plenary sessions will alternate with related workshops in which the conference theme is deepened. Poster sessions complete the program.
