The National Institute of Statistics and Geography (INEGI) of Mexico, the International Association of Official Statistics (IAOS) and the International Institute of Statistics (ISI) are pleased to announce the call for papers for the IAOS-ISI 2024 Mexico Conference Improving Decision-Making for All, to be held from the 15th to the 17th of May 2024 in Mexico City, Mexico.


The Conference aims to provide an environment where interested people and institutions can examine the current dilemmas around data and suggest ideas for producing statistical information that contributes to improving decision-making at every level, from policymakers to citizens. Thus, the Conference’s strands seek to trigger analysis and discussion on topics that highlight both the role of statistics as a valuable public good that all kinds of users can build on for various decision-making processes and the need to build a new social contract around data based on value and trust:

This strand will examine how new data demands offer opportunities for current and future statistical programs.
