What is the European Statistics Competition (ESC)?

The ESC is a competition organized by Eurostat and volunteering National Statistical Institutes addressed to secondary education students.

The main objectives of the ESC are to promote curiosity and interest in statistics among students, to encourage teachers to use new materials for teaching statistics by promoting the use of real data provided by official statistics and search for applications of acquired statistical knowledge. Moreover, it aims to show the role of statistics to students and teachers in various aspects of society, and to promote teamwork and collaboration among students to achieve common goals.

The competition is structured in two phases: national and European. The finalists of the national phase of each country are eligible to take part in the European phase. The language of the national phase is the national language while the European phase is in English.

The national competition takes place during the school year 2018/2019. The European final will take place in April - May 2019.
