The 59th World Statistics Congress organized by the International Statistical Institute, which is one of the oldest scientific organization in the world, allowed to present achievements of statistics representatives from many countries and in various areas of research, as well as to exchange information on the direction of future activities. The Congress program included scientific sessions, short courses, administrative and satellite meetings which presented not only the achievements of statistics as a scientific discipline, but also its practical applications in many areas of life, and above all, determined the perspective of the development of statistics. During the Congress also the experience of Polish statistics was presented, which was an excellent opportunity to promote the activity of the CSO and the academic community in important areas of international statistics. Much attention was paid to modern organization of censuses, multifaceted use of Big Data as well as the quality of life in its broad sense. The specific challenge for public statistics is also multidimensional nature of crossborder processes. The results of research in these areas are the source of inspiration for the modernization of public statistics, and thus define the direction of its long-term transformation. The Congress program devoted much attention to young statisticians for whom numerous sessions and satellite conferences were organized, primarily in order to create a network for communication and contacts between young statisticians from different statistical organizations around the world.
