OIC Statistical Capacity Building (StatCaB) Programme for National Statistical Offices

The accurate, timely, reliable and consistent statistical data is of an utmost importance for policy making and strategy development in any country. The OIC member countries have varying levels of capacities for producing statistical data in accordance with the relevant internationally-accepted statistical standards. Thus, the OIC Statistical Capacity Building (StatCaB) Programme for National Statistical Offices (NSOs) tries to identify statistical needs and capacities of the NSOs of OIC member countries in order to enhance the National Statistical Systems in member countries.

The StatCaB Programme was initiated in early 2007. It is the flagship capacity development programme of the SESRIC. Within its framework, the Centre collects information from the NSOs of OIC member countries through biennial questionnaires, assesses their needs and capacities, and matches these needs and capacities through organizing statistical capacity development activities. Besides; the Centre, in its capacity as the Secretariat of the OIC Statistical Commission (OIC-StatCom) regularly reports the implemented activities to the regular sessions of the OIC-StatCom.
