  • With rapid changes in the production and consumption of data, there is an urgent need for national statistical systems to transform and strengthen their capacity. To assess the performance of such systems, the World Bank has developed the Statistical Performance Indicators (SPI). By helping countries identify the strengths and weaknesses of their statistical systems, the SPI can guide decisions about investment priorities and help identify peer countries from which they might learn. The SPI includes a forward-looking framework to track progress in national statistical capacity and will replace the Statistical Capacity Indicators (SCI) that the World Bank has regularly published since 2004.

  • Let's Talk Data is brought to you by the World Bank's Development Data Group.

    Our mission is to put data to work for development. We do this by improving the quality, accessibility and use of development data, both for clients and for staff, through technical expertise, partnership, and innovation.
