Geneva, Switzerland

More than 60 countries come together at the Conference of European Statisticians (CES) to drive statistical work in the UNECE region and beyond.

The Conference:

  • Relies on the vision and advice by the Bureau which steers all CES activities.
  • Endorses guidelines, recommendations and standards developed by networks of experts.
  • Takes stock of good practices and reviews emerging issues in statistics.
  • The UNECE Statistical Division provides the Secretariat to the joint work of the CES members.

The efforts made along the years to examine and improve official statistics have developed this international statistical body into a knowledge hub which has produced around 40 guidelines, recommendations and standards for worldwide use.
