UNESCO and its Institute for Statistics (UIS) are celebrating World Statistics Day. The adoption of 17 sustainable development goals calls for the production of ever more reliable and comparable data, especially from impoverished countries. Statisticians from around the world hold the key. Their dedication will help ensure the goals are measured and met.
