For the 2023/24 school year Istat and SIS organize the fourteenth 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).

School and student registrations opened on 20 October 2023 and closed on 1 December 2023 (2 p.m.).

This year, the registration procedure has been simplified. Watch the video tutorial
