European Statistics Day is our day!

There is no better way to celebrate tomorrow’s (Oct. 20, 2021) European Statistics Day than to honour the professionals that make it possible and in a way that they know better than anyone: with numbers. 

In 2020, there were 97300 mathematicians, actuaries and statisticians employed in the EU, the equivalent of almost 22 professionals per 100000 people.

Compared with 2011, their number increased by 70 % from 57100. From that year onwards, the number of professionals increased steadily, reaching its highest total in 2020.
