The AMSI/CSIRO/SSAI event held over the Access Grid for the inaugural World Statistics Day on 20 October 2010 was a success, with participation from ten Access Grid rooms.

"The celebration of the World Statistics Day will acknowledge the service provided by the global statistical system at national and international level, and hope to help strengthen the awareness and trust of the public in official statistics. It serves as an advocacy tool to further support the work of statisticians across different settings, cultures, and domains."
