Networks of experts

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: 

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.
