The first National Strategy for the Development of Statistics (NSDS) Guidelines were developed in 2004. Following a decade of experience in almost 100 countries, PARIS21 has revisited these guidelines in order to enhance and adapt this tool based on assessments made, and taking into account the experience and views of data users and producers.

Building on these developments, and drawing upon discussions at the 2016 Cross Regional Forum convened by PARIS21 on Agenda 2030 and the SIDS: Strengthening statistical capacity and readiness, it became clear that despite SIDS NSSs sharing many common features and similar institutional challenges, major contrasts prevail between countries’ statistical planning and implementation capacities, as well as the political recognition and support they accord to statistics.

The revised NSDS guidelines for SIDS and small NSSs address these issues, while still adhering to the core NSDS structure and functions. These guidelines include a more pronounced emphasis on six areas to help facilitate greater national commitment to the formulation and implementation of NSDS, including a much shorter formulation time frame.
