National Statistical Systems


implications for statistics
Implications for Statistics
  • statistics needed:
    • to maintain and monitor development progress
    • to focus attention and engage civil society
    • for accountability, transparency, service delivery, resource management
  • enhanced political dimension: higher profile and expectation for statistics
  • resources for statistics can be part of wider programmes
  • demands closer links to policy and policy makers
the information system
The information system
  • National Statistics Institute
  • Statistics units in Sector ministries
  • Administrative information
  • Ad hoc user surveys
  • Research and analysis centres
  • Centres for qualitative exercises
sequenced information strategy
Sequenced Information Strategy
  • Well planned and targeted approach to statistical capacity building
  • Takes overview of information needs and supply
  • Starts from users - prioritised, firm political backing
  • Addresses the full information cycle, from identifying needs through to final data use
  • ordered development of data collection, sources, uses
  • Prioritised
    • What do stakeholders need? Led by country policy makers
  • Resourced
    • What can be resourced and when?
  • Timetabled
    • When do they need it? When can it be produced?
  • Incremental development
  • Statistics are the ‘eyes and ears’ of Government and civil society
  • Needed for policy, planning, management, monitoring, transparency, accountability
  • Need to be:
    • Relevant and timely
    • Accessible
    • Analysed and used
  • It needs to be actively disseminated - variety of outputs produced appropriate to audience
  • holistic approach to meeting information needs
  • linked to wider national development strategies and policies
  • needs to be realistic, sustainable, address constraints
  • clear processes for involving stakeholders
  • costed/resourced
  • build capacity to analyse and use statistics as well as to supply them

Development of Sequenced Information Strategy

Assess Information Needs

(policy, management, monitoring, accountability)



Timetabling of Demand/Supply


Strategic Statistical Development Plan

  • Defines Outputs, Activities, Inputs
  • Strategies for delivery
  • human resources, information systems
  • analysis, dissemination and use by Government and civil society
  • organisation, institutional development
  • Work plan and resource needs
  • costed, prioritised, timetabled

National resources


sis some critical success factors
SIS: Some Critical Success Factors
  • Commitment and leadership at very senior level
  • Overview of key information needs, timetable and costs
  • Priority setting and steering processes for SIS (need for a high level committee)
  • Addresses immediate needs for information and analysis, eg in PRSPs (data mining, analysis)
more critical success factors
More Critical Success Factors
  • Lay foundations for sustainable long-term capacity development, building on existing systems and processes
  • Takes account of existing capacities, resource constraints and other needs: eg professional standards, need for legislation
  • National and international resources co-ordinated and used effectively
