Call for country representatives

The mission of the International Statistical Literacy Project (ISLP) is to support, create and participate in statistical literacy activities and promotion around the world.

International Statistical literacy project (ISLP) seeks for country representatives to promote and implement project activities. At the moment we have 141 country coordinators but still many countries are missing. Please look at the current list of country coordinators. If your country is missing from our list, please consider if you are the person who we are seeking for. In the case your country is already in the list but you are interested in the ISLP, don’t hesitate to give your contact information. We might be able to add you on the list.

What do we expect from a country representative?

We are seeking a person or team who is willing to help advance statistical literacy in their country or region. An ISLP country representative might be an employee of a statistical office or of an educational institution or might be a member of a society. They may be a member of ISI and/or some of its sections, but the membership is not obligatory.

What are main tasks of the country representative?

Willingness to

  • improve statistical literacy
  • give suggestions and ideas how to develop ISLP
  • advance and implement ISLP plans within own country/region
  • provide informing material (e.g. on coming events, country’s ISLP activities) to the ISLP team and the ISLP Newsletter

How to apply for the country representative?

If you are interested in becoming a country coordinator and working in this international cooperation project, please contact the Director of ISLP, Reija Helenius. The ISLP team will handle the informal applications every month.
