Where does the data come from?

All indicators used in the PARIS21 metabase are compiled from publically available data. Links to the sources are provided for each indicator. The only exception builds the Use of Statistics indicator, which is a PARIS21 internal indicator. Data and detailed methodology is, however, available upon request. The choice of indicators is inspired by the World Bank’s statistical capacity indicator and extended after thorough internal and external evaluation to strengthen both the user and the forward looking perspective of the PARIS21 metabase.
