Webinar aims

Numbers are at the heart of official statistics. Yet statistics is more than numbers.

In this webinar Norwegian stats professor and award-winning science communicator Jo Røislien will talk about the communication of statistics. What numbers you choose to include in your analysis or not; what statistical methodology you use; how you present your results: It all affects how the numbers, the analysis and the results are interpreted by the receiver, ultimately affecting everything from public opinion to decision makers.

Official statistics is about more than just crunching numbers.
