5.3 Quality frameworks and measurement of performance of statistical systems and offices (UNESCO)
The UIS has made improving data quality a major component of its current work programme, and has a series of initiatives under way to systematically measure, report on, and improve data quality with a special focus on timeliness and accessibility. The Institute is also seeking to improve the coverage of its data and metadata.
The UIS has also a Quality Monitoring and Reporting Framework to assess the quality of its survey activities and the content of the international statistical database. This framework aligns UIS strategic objectives with a key set of performance indicators. It is based on existing work done by the IMF and Eurostat.
Priority objectives beyond 2011:
• Produce quality reports for all relevant UIS surveys;
New work to be undertaken in 2011:
• Quality report disseminated with each education data release;
