The Statistical Performance Indicators (SPI) provide an open-source framework for assessing the performance of statistical systems and the efforts to improve them. Browse the map to see the overall SPI scores for 174 countries. The SPI framework assesses the maturity and performance of national statistical systems in five key areas, called pillars.
To measure these pillars and dimensions, a set of 51 statistical performance indicators have been developed. TheStatistical Performance overall score (or index, ranging between 0 and 100) is produced by combining these indicators.
