United Nations Statistical Commission

Active groups under the Statistical Commission by pillar and type of group

Over the years, numerous groups have been established under the auspices of the Commission in order to examine topics of methodological interest, to develop normative documents and to coordinate the work of multiple actors. Typically, the outputs produced by the groups have been submitted to the Commission for discussion and eventually for endorsement.

The arrangements and mandates of various groups operating under the Commission reflect a spirit of inclusiveness and collective ownership. In order to address the wealth and breadth of official statistics, 10 distinct types of groups have been identified. The group nomenclature is thus composed of the following types: city groups, friends of the Chair groups, task forces, working groups, expert groups, committees, inter-agency and expert groups, partnerships, high-level groups and networks. This website provides a breakdown of the types of groups by sustainable development pillar.
