Mobile phone data has surfaced in recent years as one of the big data sources with great promise for its use in official statistics. There is an expectation that mobile phone data could fill data gaps especially for developing countries given their high penetration rates.

The Task Team on Mobile Phone Data has been reviewing the development in the use of mobile phone data for official statistics and drafted this guide to give elaborations for countries which are in the process of designing a project for using mobile phone data for their official statistics or are in the implementation process.

The guide comprises four chapters (Applications, Data sources, Access to mobile phone data and partnership models, Methods), followed up by two country case studies.
