"About MyStats "
The first Statistics Conference (MyStats) was held in 2012 to provide a platform for statisticians, analysts, economists, policy makers, academicians and the media to share, discuss and highlight statistical issues in analysis and policy formulation as well as challenges in the compilation and communication of statistics. A greater collaboration between the compilers of statistics and the users of statistics would further improve data compilation, communication and usage of statistics in the country.
