Why can’t we better measure and monitor results?
3 issues :
Existing data are not always fully exploited
Methods and concepts are not harmonized
Scope, timeliness and frequency are not optimal
To strengthen country capacity in producing statistical data relevant for policy design, monitoring and evaluation, by :
Better documenting, preserving, and disseminating existing microdata
Better exploiting existing datasets (quality assessments, further analysis)
Better strategizing and aligning survey programs and statistical outputs to priority data needs
