Chairman greets UA statisticians

( Information Department of the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine Secretariat )

On the occasion of their professional day, the Chairman A.Parubiy warmly congratulated Ukrainian statisticians, sincerely thanking them for their selfless and important labour.

We are living through a data revolution. It is changing our world. Our choices as individuals are increasingly informed by more and more complex sources of data. Businesses are making decisions drawing on diverse and sophisticated information systems. Governments are making laws and reforming public services with an ever widening evidence base at their disposal.

But how well equipped are we to be confident and competent in this world of data? I think there are reasons to be positive. In jobs ranging from journalism to government policymaking, the demand for training in statistical literacy is increasing – fuelled by examples that show just how much better you do your job if you have these skills.

The abundance of data means that it is feasible to generate evidence in a much quicker and more targeted way to inform almost any decision of importance.

Statistics are always provisional and capable of improvement, but if you can be confident that they have been honestly compiled they can be mobilized to add real value when you need to know what is really going on.

It is within our reach to have at our fingertips trustworthy data that helps us make good choices. That same data could also give us the means to hold accountable those in positions of authority in government, business or elsewhere – ensuring that they too are both respecting our personal data and using better statistics to make better decisions in the interests of our future prosperity.

Today is Statistics Day – better statistics, better decisions, better lives. Something worth celebrating”.


Then the Chairman wished the statisticians robust health, new ups and best of luck.
