On 20 October 2015 the National Statistics Office of Malta held a Seminar to celebrate the World Statistics Day, with the theme “Better Data, Better Lives”.
The objective of the Seminar was to increase awareness and recognition of the role of statistics in shaping policy making in many areas, with the aim of making effective impacts on societies and lives. Attendees included key statistics stakeholders and users, opinion makers, media and NSO staff members.
The National Statistics Office of Malta published 'Gozo in Figures 2015', which presents regional statistics of the Maltese archipelago. This publication is specially intended to highlight socio-economic and environmental specificities across the regions, districts and localities of Malta.
Statistics are split into 12 domains: demography, household characteristics, education, employment, business demography, economy, land and sea transport, tourism, renewable energy harvesting, rural and urban, social protection, and water and waste.
