We work with networks of experts to develop leading edge guidelines, recommendations and standards on statistics with a global impact.
The outstanding results are thanks to the national and international experts who devote their time and knowledge to:
- Address gaps or emerging issues to develop new statistics or methods.
- Prepare new or updated guidelines and recommendations.
- Develop common tools and standards for statistical production.
The groups, set up for a short period of time with clear objective and tasks, bring together the best expertise in statistics to pool resources and enable effective development work.
The outputs are used globally, for example to guide the measurement of global production, climate change, population and housing, etc. and to apply common standards in statistical production.
The current Steering Groups and Task Forces are working on the following themes:
Consumer Price Indices
Quality of Employment
Statistics for SDGs
Climate Change-Related Statistics
Measuring hazardous events and disasters
Measuring circular economy
Environment statistics and indicators
Population, gender and society
Population and Housing Censuses
