The Philippine Statistics Authority (PSA) now accepts registration of participants to the 14th National Convention on Statistics (NCS) to be held on 01-03 October 2019.
The NCS is a triennial event which aims to: (a) provide a forum for exchanging ideas and experiences in the field of statistics and for discussing recent statistical developments and prevailing issues and problems of the PSS; and (b) elicit the cooperation and support of statisticians and professionals in related fields from the government, academe and private sector towards a more responsive statistical system.
Coinciding with the opening of the 30th National Statistics Month (NSM) celebration, the 14th NCS will also carry the 30th NSM theme “Data Innovation: Key to a Better Nation.” The theme signifies the importance of innovation in the provision of quality statistics which will help policymakers design responsive and evidence-based plans and programs towards a better nation.
This year, the NCS is introducing new sessions such as, Industry 4.0; Statistics on Color and New Economies; Data Privacy, Confidentiality, and Protection; Statistical Literacy; and Data Visualization.
