Abstract

With the adoption of Agenda 2030, countries in the region are facing increasing demands for producing and disseminating statistics for monitoring the Sustainable Development Goals. Related demands are heavy on economic statistics, with close to half of the 169 SDG targets requiring economic statistics for the calculation of related indicators. It has thus become even more urgent to address related capacity constraints in the national statistical systems of Asia and the Pacific. This Statistical Brief introduces the Capacity Screening 2017, an exercise that is designed to identify key capacity constraints related to the production and dissemination of economic statistics in the region, and discusses the potential uses of the results of the exercise.
