In collaboration with its partners, PARIS21 reports on country progress in designing and implementing National Strategies for the Development of Statistics (NSDS). These reports provide an up-to-date overview of where countries currently are in their NSDS processes.
Specifically, the NSDS summary table (updated most recently in March 2013) provides a snapshot of current NSDS status in International Development Association (IDA) borrower countries plus Lower Middle Income Countries (as of 2009), and all African Countries. The information is drawn from three principal sources:
- Direct information provided by countries;
- Websites of key development partners (in particular the World Bank's Bulletin Board on Statistical Capacity - BBSC); and
- Websites of countries' national statistical offices.
The table is sorted by geographical region and provides information on existing strategy, next NSDS, and PRSP time span. It should be noted that, while existing strategies may not necessarily follow the NSDS guidelines, most strategies currently being designed follow them. This table is updated on a regular basis, as information is received.
