PARIS21’s reporting and analysis on statistical capacity, funding flows, and many other aspects have become reference materials for national statistical offices, academia, and development professionals worldwide.
We are able to undertake timely, robust and highly relevant analysis because our unique role as a partnership between the world’s major intergovernmental agencies, national statistical systems and civil society enables us to leverage diverse data sources for our analysis.
PARIS21’s team of data innovation experts deploys the latest methodologies and technology to dive deep into the data. We also work closely with national statistical agencies to support country reporting on statistics and identify capacity and funding gaps.
Partner Report on Support to Statistics (PRESS)
PARIS21’s Partner Report on Support to Statistics (PRESS) is the most comprehensive global analysis of technical and financial support to statistics available. The report combines donor reporting with innovative data mining techniques to identify trends in aid for statistics in developing and emerging economies. PRESS also analyses support to thematic data, such as gender, to highlight mismatches between data needs to support sustainable development objectives and existing commitments.
For the first time, the 2020 edition of PRESS will feature a new tool that enables forward-looking prediction to facilitate coordination and planning of development partners.

Country Report on Support to Statistics (CRESS)
CRESS is a country-led initiative, supported by PARIS21, to gather all data relating to the funding of the national statistical system (NSS), whether deriving from domestic resources or external aid. The ultimate objective is to improve efficiency of the NSS through better information sharing and co-ordination.
CRESS is an important input into the design of national strategies for the development of Statistics, in particular into the budgeted action plan. The inventory of support to the NSS that the CRESS provides will help the country identify gaps in funding the implementation of the NSDS and eliminate duplication of development interventions.
Since 2011, PARIS21 supported CRESS reports in over a dozen countries.
