The UNECE High-Level Group for the Modernisation of Statistical Production and Services Official Statistics (HLG-MOS) was set up by the Bureau of the Conference of European Statisticians (CES) in 2010 to oversee and coordinate international work relating to statistical modernisation. It promotes standards-based modernisation of official statistics. It reports to the CES and received its mandate from this body.
The mission of the HLG-MOS is to oversee the development of frameworks, tools and methods, to support modernisation in statistical organizations. The aim is to improve the efficiency of statistical production and services.
, and the ability to produce outputs that better meet user needs.

The Executive board.....
The Modernisation Committees... need little explanations here
Each year, representatives of the Modernisation Committees, their various other constituent groups and other relevant groups working in the arena of statistical modernisation come together at a workshop and decide upon a number of projects to be undertaken under the auspices of the HLG the following year. Projects are then run by a project manager and task teams of experts, which report to the Executive board
What does the HLG do?
The HLG...... snappy little explanation here: goals, background, face to face meetings, november workshops...The
now act as the mission statements shaping the HLG
The role of the HLG-MOS is formalised in its Terms of Reference. A broad vision and a strategy for implementing that vision have been formulated and agreed by the Conference Of European Statisticians, and
shape the group's work.
The objectives of the HLG-MOS are:
- To promote common standards, models, tools and methods to support the modernisation of official statistics;
- To drive new developments in the production, organisation and products of official statistics, ensuring effective coordination and information sharing within official statistics, and with relevant external bodies;
- To advise the Bureau of the CES on the direction of strategic developments in the modernisation of official statistics, and ensure that there is a maximum of convergence and coordination within the statistical "industry".
These objectives are met in a number of ways:
- annual expert group workshops bringing together representatives from relevant groups, to collectively identify priorities and plan strategies while avoiding duplication or conflicting outcomes
- year-long projects which focus on priorities identified by the workshops, using participatory techniques to find rapid and collectively-developed solutions to the challenges of statistical modernisation
