The Dominican Republic has embarked on a CRESS exercise that aims to measure the investments in statistical systems in the country. This is the first CRESS in Latin America and will form a model for reporting to the region on funding and investment in statistics. The Oficina Nacional de Estadistica (ONE) has formed a national task force to undertake the exercise and will review the investment in statistics in over 30 national agencies. Pictured here is the ONE CRESS team (from left to right): Katiuska Cassó (PARIS21 Consultant), Maridalia Rodriguez (ONE) and Victoria Tapia (ONE). The ONE will launch the process in November and the report finalized by May 2022.
