coordination capacity-report


What are the benefits of co-ordination in national statistical systems? A new report by PARIS21 proposes mechanisms and capabilities to co-ordinate, and indicators to measure co-ordination as well as argues for better data systems by outlining the benefits of better co-ordination.

Diverse actors and new sources of data populate the data ecosystems, increasing the demand for timely and high-quality data and making imperative to achieve co-ordination in statistics.

Co-ordination within a national statistical system ensures sharing of data and information without duplication of effort, functional processes, and high-quality public service delivery. An efficient pipeline gathering data producers and users can create policies to achieve the Sustainable Development Goals. Still, a lack of conceptual clarity around statistical co-ordination has hampered the ability of national statistics offices to perform adequately.

This report maps actors and levels of co-ordination in a modern data ecosystem. It provides the statistical community with a roadmap to improve co-ordination capacity. It proposes mechanisms and capabilities to co-ordinate, recommends a set of indicators to measure co-ordination and argues for better data systems by outlining the benefits of co-ordination.
