The statistical knowledge of official statisticians is very heterogeneous, there is no solid standard basic knowledge in statistics. This paper summarises the needs from statistical education, from the perspective of official statistics, based on experience gathered at the Hungarian Central Statistical Office. There are key areas where official statistics misses general knowledge and cooperation of official statistics and the teachers of statistics is absolutely necessary. Official statisticians need sophisticated thinking in understanding and translating real social and economic phenomena into statistical concepts, a general overview of the statistical business process model, and special knowledge in certain tasks (like sampling, seasonal adjustment) and/or in some subject matter areas. A system of courses is offered, some examples (e.g. EMOS, ESTP) are mentioned in the paper.
