Africa Information Highway Live Exchange: Innovation in official statistics

What:    Panel discussion: Innovation in official statistics – hype or here to stay?

Who:     African Development Bank

When:   8 June 2022, 14:00pm – 15:30 GMT

Where:  Virtual – Register here.

The discipline of official statistics is poised for a revolution, with the emergence of data science. In its traditional form, official statistics have been about managing massive outbound and reverse logistics. This was particularly evident when conducting censuses and surveys, as massive numbers of people and materials were sent out to collect data. Previously, these exercises were conducted through paper-based methods, but are now executed with handheld digital instruments.

The digital transformation of official statistics should not stop at the data collection level, however; it should reform the entire production process through the exploitation of new digital means, frameworks, and approaches.

Therefore, the objective of this session will be to discuss:

  • The risks, challenges and opportunities associated with innovation in official statistics. 
  • The digital and data skills needed by national and international statistical organizations to respond to the changing nature of work and society in the future. 
  • The potential collaborative and open innovation to assist these institutions in the production of “augmented data”. 
  • The opportunities for partnership with civil society and stakeholders to implement digital tools and skills.
  • Shaping an innovation implementation pathway based on best practices and success stories.
