The Daya Bay experiment was designed to measure this parameter with unprecedented precison through a relative measurement with eight functionally identical electron anti-neutrino detectors deployed at three experimental halls near three high-power nuclear reactor complexes in southern China. In March 2012 the Daya Bay experiment discovered the non-zero value of sin²2θ₁₃=0.092 ± 0.016 ± 0.005 with significance better than 5σ. The Daya Bay experiment is continuously improving the precision of sin²2θ₁₃ and the effective neutrino mass squared difference |Δm²_{ee}| with more statistics, less background and better control of systematics. In this talk, I will present latest results on the measurement of the oscillation parameters and the absolute reactor anti-neutrino flux.
