The Use of R in Official Statistics might be of interest to Geo colleagues. The 6th Conference on the Use of R in Official Statistics (uRos2018) will take place from 12 to 14 September 2018 at the Dutch Office for National Statistics (CBS) in the Hague.

Over the last two decades R has become the lingua franca for statisticians, methodologists and data scientists worldwide. The reasons why the official statistics community is rapidly embracing R are clear: it has an active worldwide community of users, there is wide support from the industry and it combines a vast amount of functionality for data preparation, methodology, visualisation and application building. Moreover, R-based software is exchanged through strictly enforced technical standards.

Finally, R is a truly Free (libre) Open Source software product, making it an ideal environment for sharing, collaboration and industrialising official statistics.
