  1. Statistical Capacity Building Indicators (SCBI) January, 2003

  2. Background & History • Developed by PARIS21 Task Team • Convened by IMF • We would like you partner on implementation: • What are they? • How are they compiled? • Who will administer them? • What do they show? • Use as a management tool • What we will do with them.

  3. What is their purpose? • Status of statistical capacity - evidence needed. • Assess country statistical conditions. • Needed for advocacy, country & internationally. • Management tool - highlight strengths & weaknesses. • We need to assess ourselves. • Need to monitor progress.

  4. A Three Part Questionnaire • 1. System-wide Indicators • 2. Agency-related Quantitative Indicators • 3. Data-related Qualitative Indicators

  5. 1. System Wide Indicators Simple • What Statistics Produced • Most Recent Reference year • Which Agency Responsible

  6. 2. Agency-related Indicators Three Domains - 18 Quantitative Indicators • GDP • Population Statistics • Household Income/Expenditure Statistics  Optional • Any others - countries choice

  7. 2. Agency-related Indicators(18 Quantitative Indicators) • Amount government funding (current & capital) (#2) • Amount donor funding (money & experts) (#2) • Number donors involved (#1) • Staff numbers & turnover (#2) • IT equipment (computers, network, Internet, Website) (#5) • Number of surveys, censuses and administrative sources (#3) • Number of data releases. (#1) • Format of data releases. (#1) • Existence & year of strategic statistics plan (#1)

  8. 3. Data-Related Indicators(18 Qualitative indicators…... Assess on Scale 1- 4 Prerequisites • Legal framework, confidentiality & enforcement • Coordination, user assessment & planning of statistics • Staff resources, pay & conditions & physical environment • Management, evaluation & change processes Integrity • Professional standards, independence, transparency & quality Methodological Soundness • Internal/relational standards met

  9. …….18 Qualitative Indicators) Accuracy & Reliability • Accuracy & validation (source data, intermediate data, outputs) • Methodologies used • Response monitoring Serviceability • User consultation, timeliness, periodicity, GDDS • User opinion sought Accessibility • Metadata revisions • Disseminationmethods and channels

  10. BenchmarkDescriptions Rating Scale - Qualitative Indicators • Level 4 = Highly Developed Statistical System • Level 3 = Moderately Well Developed • Level 2 = Developing with deficiencies • Level 1 = Underdeveloped Statistical System Each Indicator with full description for each of 4 levels (several issues for each indicator)

  11. Example of Benchmark 0. Prerequisites - Statistics Law Level 4 - Law gives agency full access to information, responsibility to compile & disseminate; assures confidentiality, enforced penalties for breaches of law. Level 3 - Limited access to information, responsibility, confidentiality, inadequate legal penalties. Level 2 - No effective access to information, no clear responsibility, no clear statement of confidentiality, no adequate enforcement. Level 1 - No statistical law, no responsibility, no confidentiality, no penalties, no enforcement.

  12. What do they show? Quantitative indicators quantify: • Statistics produced • Success in obtaining resources, ability to use them to produce outputs Qualitative indicators measure: • Measures efficiency & effectiveness of statistical production • International statistical good practices followed • Policy relevant statistical products, accessible to users

  13. How are SCBI compiled? • Through a self-administered questionnaire • Completed by data producers, and • Coordinated by the National statistical agency

  14. Management Tool: • A snapshot of a specific unit’s statistical conditions • A focus on opportunities by highlighting strengths and weaknesses in producing a specific statistic • A track results of capacity building efforts of a specific unit and/or production of a specific statistic - over time

  15. Users ofSCBI • International donor community • Domestic policy makers • Data producers

  16. Why Use SCBI If you cannot measure it…..you cannot manage it! • Advocacy Tool - measure problems - show successes • Statisticians can argue case for more resources - using evidence • Report regional international statistical capacity

  17. Experimental Period Now • West African countries asked to try out questionnaire • Return to Abuja with completed questionnaires; In Abuja • Report problems, solutions, reflections to PARIS21 • Advise us on familiarisation & implementation Later in 2003 • Programme for implementation & training • Launch with co-ordinating agency

  18.
