Algeria ONS study visit: Using household surveys for welfare analysis

  • In the context of the Memorandum of Understanding between the World Bank and the Algeria Office for National Statistics (ONS) and with the financial support from the Foreign, Commonwealth & Development Office (FCDO), the World Bank’s Center for Development Data (C4D2) organized a capacity development workshop aimed at sharing knowledge on international good practices for the use of household surveys for welfare analysis. The training was hosted at the Bank of Italy’s Centro Donato Menichella (CDM) and relied on expertise from the University of Rome Tor Vergata, the Bank of Italy and the Italian Statistical Institute, as well as inputs and participation from World Bank’s experts from C4D2 and the Poverty Global Practice.


    The training was an opportunity to share experiences and further develop connections with other Italian institutions such as the Bank of Italy and the National Institute of Statistics (ISTAT), and to advance a dialogue on issues around the measurement of wealth and enhancing the use of survey data for policy decisions.


    The workshop was attended by staff of the ONS, as well as representatives of the following ministries: Ministère de l'Intérieur, des Collectivités Locales et de l'Aménagement du Territoire; Ministère du Travail, de l'Emploi et de la sécurité sociale; Ministère des Finances. The course was held in French and English, with simultaneous interpretation and included several practical sessions.
