|Event Date/Time: Mar 12, 2013||End Date/Time: Mar 14, 2013|
|Registration Date: Mar 12, 2013|
|Early Registration Date: Oct 31, 2012|
The overall theme for NatStats 2013 is â€œA better informed Australia: the role of statistics in building the nationâ€.
The conference will investigate this theme by exploring how big or turbo charged data (administration/transactional, web 2.0, international and emerging datasets for example) can be used to inform decision making in the social wellbeing, the economic (from the perspective of productivity) and environment domains, as well as looking at the challenges in using big data. The conference intends to address these challenges and devise strategies to overcome them.
The conference brings together both users and providers of data from government, business, the media, academia and the wider community, to consider how we might improve Australia's evidence base for decision making. During the conference, speakers will highlight innovative uses of big data to assist in decision making in community planning, infrastructure development, business and government policy.
As a participant in the NatStats 2013 Conference, you will have the opportunity to contribute your ideas for improving the Australian statistical system for the future. NatStats 2013 will build on the enthusiasm and passion generated throughout the previous two NatStats conferences held in 2010 and 2008, focusing on a collaborative approach to national statistics for Australia. The conference will provide a unique opportunity for key stakeholders from across the statistical community to help build a strong and vibrant National Statistical Service in Australia.
