Training sessions

Statistics Estonia organises free training sessions for both users of statistics and data providers: individuals and representatives of institutions, enterprises and organisations. The training sessions take place virtually in Microsoft Teams, at Statistics Estonia or at client location. You can place an order for a training session, if there are at least ten participants.

Training sessions for the users of statistics

The goal is to teach the users of statistics to find information independently on the websites, statistical databases and applications of Statistics Estonia, introduce Statistics Estonia and the European Union statistical office Eurostat and provide an overview of the principles of producing official statistics.

The training sessions are meant for anyone with interest in statistics: the media, general education school and university students, teachers, government employees, enterprises, etc.

The training sessions cover the following topics:

  • introduction to Statistics Estonia;
  • principles of official statistics;
  • statistical subject matter domains (environment, economy, population, social life);
  • presentation of statistical databases, products and applications and instructions on how to use these;

The programme can be customised to include more information on a particular topic.

During the training session, the purposes of data collection and publishing principles are explained. Virtual training sessions can be rewatched on the relevant questionnaire materials page.
