Background

In recent years, focus has been on the use of indicators in discussions of international forums, such as the OECD World Forum. Several statistical and analytical organisations are increasingly seeing it as important to present statistical indicators on key societal phenomena to a number of different audiences.

This seminar was about the art of making statistical indicators understandable and appealing to modern audiences. Leading-Edge products were showcased. A review of technical solutions (XML plug-in, Java, SVG, Flash...) was made and participants had the opportunity to participate in discussions on how to select, develop and implement dynamic graphics (purpose, strategy, tailored tools or off-the-shelf...)

The purpose of the seminar was to see if good practices could be identified and recommendations could be made, allowing organisations to advance in this important field.
