United Nations Fundamental Principles of Official Statistics: Implementation guidelines

Final draft, subject to editing (January 2015)


At its forty-second session in 2011, the Commission established group of Friends of the Chair on the Fundamental Principles of Official Statistics to, amongst other things, develop a practical guide for the implementation of the Principles (decision 42/111). In 2014, the Commission welcomed the first draft of the implementation guidelines as an excellent starting point, and asked the Friends of the Chair group to continue its work on this important document; in this context, it invited countries to enrich the implementation guidelines with further comments and submission of good country practices (decision 45/101). In the following consultation process almost 40 countries contributed and the final implementation guidelines will be presented to the Statistical Commission at its 46th session in March 2015.
