To commemorate the World Statistics Day (October 20, 2015), Idescat has presented the Data Manifesto. This Manifesto appeared in the era of the revolution of data, which are the source of wealth of the 21st century. The aim of the Manifesto is to promote the correct use of data, fully respecting the privacy and confidentiality of personal data.
The intention behind this Manifesto is to make public administrations and society at large aware that an adequate use of data can create a broad range of opportunities at different levels of the social and economic domains of our country.
At the time of the presentation, the Catalan Statistical Society has adhered to the Data Manifesto, together with the following ten institutions: the Agency for Healthcare Quality and Evaluation of Catalonia, the Barcelona Graduate School of Economics, the Centre for Demographic Studies, the Centre for Research in Environmental Epidemiology, the Catalan Institution for Research and Advanced Studies, the Barcelona Institute of International Studies, the Catalan Institute for the Evaluation of Public Policies, the Institute of Environmental Sciences and Technology, the Institute of Government and Public Policy.
