Statistical Skills for Official Statisticians is a resource which forms an integral part of strengthening the ABS’ overall statistical capability.
This resource is important for all aspiring statisticians, new starters to the ABS and existing ABS employees who produce official statistics and wish to continually add value to the ABS, the wider National Statistical Service (NSS) and international statistical community.
Statistical Skills for Official Statisticians will provide guidance on:
- the range of statistical skills, knowledge and expertise needed to work effectively throughout the end to end statistical production cycle; and
- the role of the ABS in official statistics, the policy and legislative environment governing statistical work, and the responsibilities and other professional skills required of statisticians.
It will also enable statisticians to further develop their statistical careers and to assist others who may be seeking development opportunities.
