For the 2022/23 school year Istat and SIS organize the thirteenth edition of the Italian Statistics Olympics.

The Olympics are aimed to encourage students to approach statistical reasoning, to arouse their interest in data analysis and probability, to enable them to better understand the meaning of the quantitative information they receive every day.

The initiative is open to upper secondary school students (classes 1-4).

Results of the European statistics competition 2023

On June 5th, Eurostat published the results of the European statistics competition. Students from the “3VIS” team of the “Riccati-Luzzatti” Institute of Treviso took the second place for the 14-16 year old group. 63 teams participated in the team phase of the ESC, while as many as 19,000 students took part in the respective national phases of this 6th edition.

Also this year, Italian students were the most numerous among those from the 19 participating European countries (more than 5,000). The 3VIS team made a fun, original and well-crafted video on the topic of teen-agers’ well-being in Italy, using data from Istat and the European Statistical System and filmed in the school auditorium.
