Global Review 2012

The United Nations Statistical Commission, at its session in 2011, asked the United Nations Statistics Division (UNSD) to conduct a global review of the implementation of the Fundamental Principles of Official Statistics and to prepare a report to be discussed at the Commission’s session in 2013. This global review builds on an earlier review conducted in 2003. It was part of a work programme under the leadership of a Friends of the Chair group leading up to the 20th anniversary of the adoption of the Fundamental Principles by the UN Statistical Commission in 2014.

The results of the global survey, in which 126 national statistical offices participated, were reported to the Statistical Commission at its 44th session in the following document:
