ABSTRACT
Financial, economic or social crisis and outbursts of violence that have occurred one after the other may just be episodes of a latent global crisis stemming from a growing discrepancy between collective evolutions and the ability of individuals to grasp their dynamics. This is examined here from the standpoint of information: that which can be held about persons and that which can be constructed to serve an overall intelligence. Protecting personal interests and privacy threatened by powerful data-handling technologies has led to adopting the � Information Technologies and Liberties � bill. Meanwhile, statistics and related disciplines have increasingly been called upon to understand social and economic phenomena. Thus, statistics is faced with three obligations, three challenges : protecting the privacy of those persons who supply the data it requires; delivering findings that are neither censored nor distorted by political, ideological or economic interests; inventing new tools to understand societies that are ever more open, complex and intermingling.
