Support for Development of National Statistics System Project:
Support for the Development of National Statistics System is a project funded by
United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) and Implemented by Statistical
Institute of Jamaica (STATIN).Despite Jamaica’s accomplishments in the area of
data collection, analysis and reporting, there is the need for a coordinated
approach to the production of national statistics to guarantee consistency,
efficiency, transparency and compatibility with international standards and
among national agencies.
To achieve this requires the establishment of a framework within which national
statistical priorities are established and systems and tools put in place to
streamline and mainstream the requisite conditions for the development of a
coherent national statistics system. The objective of this project is to support
the development and implementation of a coordinating framework for the
production of accurate, consistent, relevant and reliable statistics for
enhanced evidence-based development policy formulation and programming.
