For that occasion, the CBS is organising an event where the CBS and SO ambassadors will have a roundtable discussion about the importance of the statistics, how to stimulate the curiosity and interest of high school students in statistics, how to encourage them to use actual data and apply acquired statistical knowledge and they will try to emphasise the importance of statistics in different aspects of society.
Since the European Day of Statistics is being celebrated in October, the Croatian Bureau of Statistics will have activities spanning the whole month through the "Back to basics" Project.
The goal of that project is to introduce the general public to frequently used, but also frequently misunderstood statistical concepts in an interesting and accessible way through eight videos. Three videos have been already published on the following themes: The Census of Population, Households and Dwellings, Population Estimates and Metadata.
More videos on the topics of Risk-of-Poverty Threshold, Median and Average, Seasonal Adjustment as well as Statistical Error will be soon available on Facebook, Twitter and YouTube channel of the Croatian Bureau of Statistics.
