Statistics2013 participants join celebration of World Population Day

Manila, Philippines, July 11, 2013—In recognition of World Population Day 2013, the National Statistics Office-NCR  and the nearly 2,100 other organizations in 124 countries participating in the International Year of Statistics (Statistics2013) are spotlighting the contributions of statisticians to quantify the world’s constantly growing population.

Observed on July 11 each year, World Population Day is organized by the United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA). Each year a theme is selected to highlight a priority area of concern. The theme for this year is adolescent pregnancy, with UNFPA seeking to raise awareness of the issue in “the hopes of delivering a world where every pregnancy is wanted, every child birth  is safe, and every young person’s potential is fulfilled.”

Statistics2013 is a worldwide initiative that is highlighting the contributions of the statistical sciences to finding solutions to global challenges, including the well-being of the world’s population. NSO-NCR is a Statistics2013 participating organization.
Statisticians in every country around the world contribute significantly to providing more, better and timely information about population-related issues and concerns to the appropriate national and in some cases international government agencies, like the United Nations (UN).

In fact, thanks to a UN initiative titled the 2010 World Programme on Population and Housing Censuses, in the last eight years 202 countries have conducted a nationwide census and in the process have enumerated an estimated 90% of the world’s population.

It is not a stretch to say that statisticians are vital to all forms of population research. Their contribution begins with the planning, development and conduct of national censuses and continues with the compilation and analysis of the results. Government agencies and private research groups alike use the data from these censuses to determine growth and migration trends, understand the ageing of their residents, study the ongoing urbanization of our global society, identify and plan for emerging issues, and a range of other population-related concerns. These entities then develop plans and programs that enable governments and private groups to meet the needs of their citizens or constituency, respectively.

“The valuable contributions of statistics and the world’s statisticians ensure that our countries—as individual states and as members of the United Nations—fully understand the dynamics driving our population,” says NSO-NCR Director. “This critical knowledge is used by national governments and the United Nations to gain insight into the current and future needs of its citizenry and to develop and implement plans to address these growing and shifting needs.”

In honor of World Population Day and the thousands of statisticians around the globe who are working tirelessly to conduct national censuses and to monitor population trends and analyze related issues, the International Year of Statistics will feature on its website (www.statistics2013.org) several special items that highlight their important contributions to world population initiatives.
