By BBN Staff: The Statistical Institute of Belize (SIB) is inviting all Belizeans to learn more about the National Statistical System (NSS) and its role in the country during the ongoing celebration of Statistics Week.
The event kicks off today with Caribbean Statistics Day, an annual event celebrated on October 15. Statistics week will end with the celebration of World Statistics Day on October 20, which is being celebrated under the theme ‘Connecting the world with data we can trust.’
The SIB notes that, due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, all activities will be virtual, beginning on Thursday, October 15, with a social media video campaign. The SIB will be posting videos from the various members of the NSS such as the Ministry of Education, Ministry of Agriculture, Central Bank of Belize, and Belize Tourism Board, about the types of statistics they produce and their importance for planning and making informed decisions.
The events continue on Friday, October 16, with a Virtual Exhibition being live-streamed on the SIB’s Facebook page. The exhibition will feature statistics produced by various organizations in Belize, including the SIB. The Institute will also be making virtual presentations to schools across the country on October 19 and 20.
Acting Director-General of the SIB, Diana Trejo, explained that the event is used to highlight the importance of statistics and the vital role that quality information plays in the decision-making process, at all levels.
“In the items that we are in right now, decisions that are made have to be made quickly and with the best information possible because, in these times, those decisions affect lives,” Trejo said.
