Modernization of Statistical Production and Servicesin Asia-Pacific

Marko Javorsek, Statistics Division, ESCAP

International Seminar on Modernizing Official Statistics: Meeting Productivity and New Data Challenges

24 - 26 October 2013, Tianjin, PR China

ESCAP events in modernization

  • Side event to the Committee on Statistics, Second session – Modernizing statistical information systems, Bangkok 2010

  • Expert Group Meeting: Opportunities and advantages of enhanced collaboration on statistical information management in Asia and the Pacific, Bangkok 2011

  • SIAP Management Seminar 2011 – Shifting from “stove-pipe” data producer to “information service” provider

  • Practical advisory workshop: Supporting effective use of information and communication technology in population census operations, Moscow 2012

    • GSBPM & SDMX

  • Expert group meeting: MSIS, Bangkok/Paris 2013

What are the main drivers of modernization?

  • Creation of a more adaptive and cost-effective information management environment through stronger collaboration

    • Processes that are more agile and quality assured, while requiring less resources to operate and maintain

  • Modernize information systems to address the evolving field of statistics and maintain relevance across developed and developing countries

  • Regional collaboration and influence global directions

    • Collaborative efforts are likely to be more cost-effective and of higher quality

Specificities of Asia-Pacific region in the field of modernisation

  • Cost-effectiveness benefit was assessed to be of less immediate priority

  • Improved quality could be taken up as a key objective

  • Concepts, standards and tools are relatively new to a large number of countries in the region

  • NSOs in the region are most often structured by statistical areas or domains

  • No transnational legislation on statistics

  • The least developed countries lack the full range of methodological and information technology expertise

Regional perspective on modernization

  • CST 3 (2012) proposes the establishment of

    • High-level strategic body

    • Network of Experts

  • Strategic Advisory Body for the Modernization of Statistical Production and Services in Asia and the Pacific (SAB-AP)

    • The mission is “To raise awareness and build capacity, particularly related to concepts, methods and standards, to support national modernization efforts”

  • The Body has 7 members (Australia, India, Malaysia, Pakistan, Rep. of Korea, Samoa, Viet Nam) and is chaired by Australia

  • First meeting of the body in November 2013 in Japan (next month)

MSIS 2013

  • In 2013 ESCAP joins the organization and MSIS; first time in Asia-Pacific in 2010 in the Republic of Korea

  • 23-25 April 2013 held in 2 venues joined by live web link

    • Paris – hosted by OECD

    • Bangkok – hosted by ESCAP

  • Joint sessions were held Bangkok afternoon and Paris morning time

  • The meeting discussed the following substantive themes:

    • Architecture;

    • Streamlining statistical production;

    • Innovation;

    • Collaboration.

Outcomes of the MSIS 2013 (Bangkok)

  • Participants recommended that

    • the work of the expert community centre around key priority areas,

    • interested practitioners and experts to gather in smaller working groups.

  • Key priority areas:

    • Strengthening national statistical systems (coordination, information flow in decentralized systems, etc.)

    • Generic Standard Business Process Model (GSBPM)

    • Statistical Data and Metadata Exchange (SDMX)

    • e-collection

    • Data dissemination

    • Big data

MSIS 2014

  • 14-16 April 2014 held in 2 locations simultaneously:

    • Dublin, Ireland hosted by the Central Statistics Office of Ireland

    • Bangkok (TBC) hosted by ESCAP

  • Preparations on-going, call for papers will be sent out soon

  • The meeting schedule is centered around the following substantive themes:

    • How IT can contribute to changing organizational culture;

    • Standards-based modernization;

    • Innovation;

    • Architecture.


  • Direct outcome from the MSIS 2013 EGM

  • Working group (WG-SDMX) will be established under the auspices of the SAB-AP

  • The primary focus of the project will be to promote the use of SDMX among national statistical systems in the region and build regional capacities in applying it

  • The project will focus on

    • Mapping of DSD for data exchange (reuse global DSD),

    • Capacity building on using tools to support automated data exchange (e.g. Eurostat SDMX-RI).

ADB/ESCAP Project on SDMX (cont’d)

  • Focus on economic statistics indicators (ADB Key Indicators), most likely limited to NA or BoP in the first stage

  • Take into account the specific needs of other international organizations collecting economic data (e.g. OECD, IMF, UNSD, WB, etc.)

  • In the pilot phase focus on 4 to 5 countries in Asia-Pacific

  • Timeline:

    • Scoping phase: November 2013 – February 2014

    • Implementation phase: March – December 2014
