Statistical Capacity Building (StatCaB) Programme for National Statistical Organisations

The accurate, timely, reliable and consistent statistical data is of an utmost importance for policy making and strategy development in any country. The Member Countries of OIC have widely different capacities for producing statistical data in accordance with the relevant internationally-accepted statistical standards. Thus, StatCab is an attempt to identify major needs and capacities of OIC Member Countries' National Statistical Organizations in order to enhance National Statistical Systems in OIC Member Countries.

The Statistical Capacity Building (StatCaB) Programme has been initiated in early 2007. It is a long-term training programme and large scale capacity development project. Within this framework, the Centre collects information from NSOs of OIC Member Countries through questionnaires, assesses the needs and capacities of the Member Countries accordingly, and matches these needs and capacities through organizing short term training programs, courses or workshops. Besides, the Centre evaluates the outcomes and impacts of the training and disseminates the activities.

The StatCaB questionnaire, made available in three official languages of the OIC, can be downloaded by clicking on the below relevant links.
