PARIS21 released the new report "Use of Citizen-Generated Data for SDG Reporting in the Philippines: A Case Study" in partnership with the Philippine Statistics Authority (PSA) and the Philippine Statistical Research and Training Institute (PSRTI).

The report is underlined by the fact that the 2030 Agenda requires data at an unprecedented level of volume and granularity. Recognising that available official data sources might not be sufficient to cope with this demand, PSA explored the potential use of non-traditional data sources such as citizen-generated data (CGD) for official reporting on the SDGs.

The study provided opportunities to bring together a range of stakeholders, primarily from CSOs and NGOs across sectors and data communities to collaborate and explore data that can address SDG data gaps.

The case study also addresses concerns by looking at the potential of CGD in the Philippines, aiming to shed light on the questions:

  • Who are the data producers?

  • How are data obtained?

  • What is the approach of civil society organisations (CSOs) to data collection?

  • What is the primary purpose for CGD production and collection? 

The study also identifies and defines the quality criteria to validate use of CGD for reporting in the Philippines, and offers recommendations for advancing effective, responsible use of CGD moving forward.
