Among the initiatives for the Italian Day of Statistics, the Italian National Institute will launch the ninth edition of the Italian Statistical Olympics, promoted and organized by Istat and Sis (Italian Statistical Society). The Olympics involve upper-secondary school students and are aimed at bringing young people closer to statistical reasoning and to get them aware of the importance of statistics in everyday life.
The Italian competition is the national phase of the European Statistical Competition, promoted by Eurostat. ESC will be held next year and it will be open to students who have passed the national phase.
Both competitions are an important opportunity for cooperation at the national and European level to promote a conscious use of quantitative information among young people.
In addition, Istat makes available a new web application that allows to view the progress achieved by Italy on the objectives of sustainable development (SDGs). Furthermore, the time series of the publication Sixty years of Europe are extended and the publication The life of women and men in Europe in Italian language is updated.
Along with Eurostat, Istat has implemented its web site in order to let some initiatives better known: the link to the new flagship publication ‘Key Figures on Europe’, the retweet of Eurostat's infographics or link to it, the announcement of the Italian statistics olympics and the European statistics competition with an animated GIF, the link to the updated version of ‘The life of men and women in the EU’.
Noi Italia. 100 statistics to understand the country we live in provides a general framework for understanding the different economic and social aspects of our country, its role within Europe and its territorial differences.

The latter facilitate reading and understanding phenomena in space and time. Graphs can be exported, and the whole dataset of time series together with other additional data can be downloaded in excel format. Further information are available for each sector (Publications and Useful links) which enable to go deeper in the aspects you are interested in. Finally the whole database and its 19 sectors can be captured, together with Sources, Definitions, Publications and Useful links by using the Data download icon on the homepage.
In Rome on 25 March 1957, Belgium, France, Germany, Italy, Luxembourg and the Netherlands signed two Treaties establishing the European Economic Community and Euratom. A first step towards the European Union.
Now, 60 years after the historical signing, Istat provides an original account of the evolution of Europe: it starts from the numbers to look beyond the differences between individual countries and focuses on overall changes, economic and social convergence, the effects of policies.
Divided in four different themes – population, society, labour, economy – one for each phenomenon investigated, Italy's data are compared with the E6 (the six founding countries) and the Eu28 aggregates (today's European Union) . The picture that emerges, in part unexpectedly, illustrates the long path followed, denies some rooted commonplace, and shows other perspectives of the current complex situation in Europe.
A representation of Europe’s dimensions in size, population and density introduces to the themes and phenomena.
October 20, 2017 the National Institute of Statistics and the Italian Statistical Society (Sis) promoted and organized the Italian Day of Statistics.
This year's event is the occasion to celebrate the 60th anniversary of the signing of the Treaties of Rome, the first step towards the establishment of the European Union. Istat has produced an original story of the evolution of the Union: Sixty years of Europe, looks beyond the differences between individual countries and, through facts and figures, examines overall changes, focusing on economic and social convergence, the relevance of phenomena and the effects of policies. This initiative is accompanied by the Italian version of the digital publication The Life of Women and Men in Europe, produced by Eurostat, which tells and illustrates the different lifestyles of European citizens.
