NatStats 08 will give you an opportunity to meet with a wide range of key players involved in the production and use of the official data that informs and shapes a great deal of public and private policy and investment decisions across our nation.

This is a particularly important time in the evolution of our national statistical infrastructure as the many data custodians and producers of official statistical data seek to support the greater emphasis being placed by governments on both the importance of clearly defined outcomes for publicly funded initiatives and of establishing quantifiable measures to assess progress in achieving these outcomes.

The Conference will involve you in discussions on how we might improve and extend our measures of progress in Australian society as well as more generally improve the statistical base for the nation to assist and encourage informed decision making research and discussion within governments and the wider community in collaborative and cost effective ways.

A gala dinner will be held at the Melbourne Aquarium giving delegates a chance to network in a more informal setting.
