The Open Assessment Repository (OAR) is a platform for comparing various statistical capacity assessment frameworks. The OAR supports the work of the subgroup on Measuring Capacity within PARIS21’s Task Team on New Approaches to Capacity Development.

The current objective of the OAR is to improve the way statistical capacity is measured. In particular, the OAR will identify possible domains which are overlooked, such as the capacity of countries to use statistics.

It is envisaged that future development of the OAR will include the capacity score for a common core set of capacity dimensions.
