Summary of issues
issues for discussion 1 resources
Issues for Discussion – 1Resources

Training can be resource intensive, with direct and opportunity costs. But it is widely recognised as a vital investment.

How can the statistical community work together to make a stronger case for appropriate resources to be made available for training?

issues for discussion 2 skills and competences
Issues for Discussion – 2Skills and Competences

Official statisticians are increasingly being asked different sorts of questions; at the same time we have more tools and more data available to us.

Are our skills developing in order to meet these needs? Do we need core competences for official statisticians, which might include the skill of ‘training’ ?

issues for discussion 3 better co ordination
Issues for Discussion – 3Better co-ordination

The CCSA is considering ways of increasing the co-ordination of statistical training for staff in international agencies. It would seem desirable to extend this co-ordination, where appropriate, to staff in NSIs and ministries.

What are the barriers to a more global, less-fragmented approach to statistical training, and how might they be overcome?
