Government statistics and data

Effective policy depends on relevant and reliable data, supplied by national statistical offices and other data producers. Strong evidence supports government decision making and keeps policymakers accountable for their actions and results.

Many countries struggle with under-resourced and fragmented statistical systems. This prompts the need for statistical capacity building and strengthened statistical governance. We help governments modernise their national statistical offices and systems to ensure the data they produce meet international standards.

Many national statistical offices in low- and middle-income countries find themselves under pressure from donors to produce the data required to monitor the effectiveness of donors’ aid, as opposed to the data needed for policymakers. Our outcome-focused approach, understanding of statistical systems, and insights into statistical planning are crucial to bridge this gap and help enhance the effectiveness and integrity of national statistical systems.
