Statisticians are working a lot on structuring realty in order to count the right things. But reality is not at all stable, changes are going on all the time and statistics have to decide which changes have to be followed.
So population Statsticians had to adapt to new family models, had to recognize that ‘male’ and ‘female’ is not sufficient and now a new type of people is popping up: e-Citizens.
‘The Republic of Estonia will be the first country to offer e-residency. People from all over the world will have an opportunity to get a digital identity provided by the Estonian government – in order to get secure access to world-leading digital services from wherever you might be.’ From: ‘Become an Estonian E-Resident’
‘An e-resident can use and enjoy the same great digital services that allow Estonians to do anything and everything digitally–sign all documents,launch and
manage companies, do the banking, encrypt files, etc.’
Digital Society – Digital Population?
With a simple ID-Card you become an E-Estonian and a member of the digital society. And who will count this new kind of population?
