2nd Business Statistics Seminar – 11 November 2009
The theme of this seminar will be transport. Transport is not only an important economic sector but also a sector of major social and environmental importance. As concerns over cross-cutting issues such as health, sustainable travel and energy consumption have emerged, so have the demands for data.
CSO is continually striving to remain relevant to data users by compiling data on emerging developments and trends.
The seminar provides an ideal opportunity to hear about some of the new data holdings and reports being developed by CSO and learn about some ongoing research that is making use of CSO data.
The seminar also offers a great chance to meet many of the CSO transport statisticians, who will be happy to answer any questions you might have or discuss what data are available to best suit your needs.
The seminar will be of interest to:
– Firms and their representative organisations
– Government officials
– Academics and students
– Anyone interested in understanding transport, energy or the environment
