Caribbean Statistics Day (CSD) is commemorated annually on October 15.
The rationale for the observance of Statistics Day is to highlight statistics and its crucial role across a wide spectrum of activities - from daily decision-making faced by individuals, businesses, students, etc to planning, policy-making, and analysis and research activities of governments, academia and other users.
Expectations are the observance of CSD would garner a greater profile for statistics across the community.

African countries face many challenges in their quest to improve the welfare of their populations, one of which is the lack of access to affordable and reliable modern energy.
Africa has the lowest electrification rate of all regions ; it is estimated that only 42% of the population has access to electricity, compared with 75% in the developing world.
