ISA – RC55 Mid-Term Conference
ISA – RC55 "Social Indicators"
DEALING WITH COMPLEXITY IN SOCIETY:
FROM PLURALITY OF DATA TO SYNTHETIC INDICATORS
Padua (Italy) September 17-18 2015
The globalized world in which we live is characterized by complex human and social phenomena, like well-being, human development, environmental sustainability, welfare, etc., whose conditions determine the progress of the society.
At the same time, data availability and technical opportunities increase day by day. The need of effective synthesis of data, based on robust conceptual and methodological framework is even more evident.
The Conference will focus on recent developments in synthesizing indicators and, more generally, in quantifying complex phenomena. The workshop will also identify important problems and new research directions in the field of social indicators.
The conference is also Satellite Meeting of the SIS 2015 Conference “Statistics and Demography: The Legacy of Corrado Gini”.
The call for sessions/papers deadline is open (deadline: February 28, 2015).
