The challenges faced by official statistics in the 21st century are manifold. We are surrounded by systems that are becoming substantially more and more complex. The emergence of new phenomena, namely, globalisation, digitalisation, global demographic trends and sustainable development, added to the complex realities that need to be meaningfully and timely captured by official statistics, have resulted in the development of new patterns, routes and types of data, offering us with the opportunity to further improve the relevance of statistics. In response to these trends we need to find new, usable tools and methods for the measurement of such changing phenomena. Network theory is an innovative tool and approach in our changing world that can help us handle the complexity of the 21st century. However, so far it has not featured in mainstream official statistics.
