Caribbean Statistics Day
Caribbean Statistics Day is celebrated on October 15th every year by the Caribbean Community (CARICOM) Secretariat and by the National Statistics Offices of Member States and Associate Members. Caribbean Statistics Day was first observed in 2009, as agreed to by the Standing Committee of Caribbean Statisticians (SCCS) at its Thirty-Third Meeting in Barbados. The rationale for the observance of Caribbean Statistics Day was to highlight statistics and its crucial role across a wide spectrum of activities, from the daily decision-making faced by individuals, businesses, students, etc. to the planning, policy-making, analysis, and research activities of governments, academia, and other users. The observance seeks to raise awareness of the many achievements and garner a greater profile for statistics throughout the Community.
