Statistical knowledge is one of the main competences of next generation specialists. One by one country declared statistical education as a national priority and launched programs to improve teaching and training in data understanding and analysis. Universities play a leading role. Following other countries Russian university community is working to enhance statistical education. First step is to compose modern statistical information infrastructure. The core is databases designed and maintained under the Moscow State University-based Information System RUSSIA The databases keep social and economic indicators at regional and local levels with annual and monthly update and are complimented by graphics- and map-based data visualization. System and comparative analysis tools are accomplished. Tutorials are implemented to train users. The first one is available to assist in evidence-based investigations in public administration. Work underway is on public administration domain ontology to integrate statistical indicators and analytical publications. The databases are available for free to all RF universities, colleges, think tanks, academic institutes, NGO, public libraries, specialists and citizens and serve for statistical culture dissemination in Russian society. The resource is of special value for local level powers - Russian national statistical agency Rosstat has only 3 years ago started to publish local level data. The UIS RUSSIA databases provide for more developed analytical services.
