Philippines workshop

The Philippine Statistics Authority (PSA) is looking to enhance its national strategy for the development of statistics (NSDS) and bridge SDG data gaps by exploring potential use of citizen generated data (CGD). CGD are data produced by individuals or organizations in order to “directly monitor, demand or drive change on issues that affect them.” This focus on individuals and civil society is a possible step towards realising statistical strategies which are truly in touch with national priorities, rather than adopting policies which may lack inclusiveness.

In partnership with PARIS21, the PSA held a national workshop to launch its project on CGD for Official Reporting in the Philippines in an effort to facilitate discussion with civil society organizations and to consider the use of their data in reporting SDGs.  Specifically, the project aims to assess whether CGD in the Philippines would have the potential to fill the SDG data gaps identified by the PSA under Tier 2 and Tier 3 indicators. The expected outputs from the project include an inventory of available CGD in the Philippines, an inventory of SDG data gaps that may be filled by CGD, a data quality measurement framework for CGD, and a case study report on CGD in the Philippines.
