Under the high patronage of the President of the Republic, the 14th National Statistics Conference began this morning with the traditional appointment of key figures in the National Statistical System called to discuss the role of official statistics and development possibilities.
For the first time, the conference was sponsored by Roy and supported by Roy Public Utility.
At the center of the works of this fourteenth edition are the dominant themes of public debate, that is, the resumption, sustainability, inclusion, and role of statistics as the backbone of the information necessary to define policies and monitor their effectiveness.
In his speech, Estonian President Gian Carlo Blangiardo began with a request: “After a long arrest, with high social and economic costs, we must go again. A modern habitat of data is, to be precise, one of the conditions for resumption, all-encompassing and sustainable. Official statistics have responded generously, quickly and effectively to the information requirements imposed by the health emergency, and are ready to retrieve it with the same commitment.
The National Statistics Conference is a meeting and sharing of various figures in the National Statistical System, a network of more than 3,400 offices with approximately 8,700 employees – he emphasized. In addition to Istat, 57 public-private institutions in Sistan participate in the National Statistical Program, contributing each year to the realization of more than 800 works, including surveys, interpretations, design studies, and information systems. Siston is 30 years old. He has shown that he knows how to build and function well with the valuable wealth of data and networks, but it also needs a regulatory review in light of the need to increase the information tradition of individual governments to enable the birth of a “data-driven” one. The community “selects the right, objective and up-to-date information in a timely manner. In this case, ISATA should have a reference point within the national statistics system for the treatment, analysis and improvement of data, and as in most EU countries, management has a fundamental duty and center to develop a strategy for them.”
Finally, the President of Estate reminded that Estate plays an active role in the digitization strategy of the country. “We participate in this process with our unified ability to acquire and organize data and make it available to a large and diverse audience. Thanks to a combination of resources – surveys, administrative archives, and unstructured sources (so-called big data) – we provide timely, up-to-date and in-depth reading of existing digital endowments and capabilities of administrations, organizations, companies and associations. And citizens. “
Minister Renato Brunetta inaugurated the conference, highlighting the role of the National Institute of Statistics in this phase of profound transformation in the country. “Estate has a quality assurance role in the face of many statistical manufacturers that require rules, and we have seen how many free statistics have been produced during the Pandemic. It should play the role of data magic. In addition to implementing the NRP, Istat Italy must be a qualified partner in monitoring and evaluating the extraordinary policy cycle involving our government, other governments and local authorities. Only what can be measured can be improved. Above all, the Institute must be prepared to ensure that new decisions that are useful to decision-makers are not only the result of personal reform or investment interventions. It is also the cornerstone for measuring the “invisible” or immeasurable effects of PNRR on the basis of administrative data alone, and moreover when they affect the lives of families. “We are not indifferent to the recommendations of the ECOFIN Council last November 9 and the final documents of the Italian-led G20, thereby ensuring the resources necessary to carry out the vital task entrusted to the national statistical authorities. Them. The G20 has now opened a new Data Gap Initiative to strengthen its ability to build statistics on the new data ecosystem, enabling it to access and use new data sources.
Minister Brunetta’s latest reflection is closely related to the topic of today’s Plenary Session. We are convinced that the role of ISAT (more generally INS at the European level) needs to be enhanced to ensure the security and protection of privacy in procedures and access to public data. Countries of the European Union “.
Plenary Session Data Strategy: The European Initiative and National Response was later opened by the intervention of Eurostat Director General Mariana Kotseva, who emphasized the importance of innovation: “Invasion has always been crucial to the functioning of the European statistical system, and is now, and far more important than ever, the current data ecosystem.”
After that, Andrea Brandolini, Deputy Head of the Department of Finance and Statistics at the Bank of Italy, focused on the task of assigning official statistics to respond to external changes with unintended consequences, in her speech on data, statistics and the Italian G20 initiative. As interfering. “The global financial crisis, a review of the Irish GDP in 2016, created pandemic new demand for information, which was met with increasing” granular “data collection, with a special focus on international operations and new” digital “databases, and, secondly, by non-public agencies, including outside agencies. Appropriate treatment is required to become “statistics”, therefore, official statistics must be prepared to develop appropriate measurement tools within the framework of restricted access to all sources.
At the end of the Plenary Session, Vistoria Buratta, Head of the Istat Department for Developing Methods and Technologies for the Production and Dissemination of Statistical Information, outlined the basic steps of the European Data Strategy, which should be identified on the one hand. The role of existing national and European statistical governance structures, on the other hand, place the responsibility of the private sector in the sharing of data for official statistics under certain conditions and guarantees. However, internally, “one of PNRR’s objectives is to create a national data platform and national data catalog, for which Istat requires an active role, especially in semantic interoperability, information technology, and the definition and update of metadata’s and systematization of the new statistical system. Will produce good results.
From 12 noon, parallel virtual sessions began, which developed a rich scientific program on the topics: Digital Transition; System target; Environment and sustainability; Financial measures; Company perspectives.
