The World Bank Provides A Positive Assessment Of The Activities Of The Statistical Agency Of Tajikistan

Friday, June 30, 2017 - 00:18

While delivering a report at the Geneva Conference of European Statisticians, the leading expert of the World Bank, Joao Pedro Avezededo, spoke positively about the work of the Statistics Agency under the President of Tajikistan. As reported by the Agency's press center, the leaders of the statistical services of many countries, including the CIS countries, took part in the conference held in Switzerland on June 19-22. Tajikistan was represented by the head of the Agency for Statistics of the Republic, Gulnor Khasanzoda.


During the conference, its participants examined the issues related to poverty, the statistics of goals related to sustainable development, the current demographic projections, the effects of climate change, the modernization of official statistics and a number of other topics. Specifically, the first day of the conference was devoted to the topics of poverty measurement and methodological problems related to measuring poverty, as well as the comparability of the poverty-related indicators.


The opening report delivered by Joao Pedro Avezededo pointed out the positive work of the Agency on Statistics in measuring multidimensional poverty. According to him, the measure of subjective well-being in Tajikistan was used to determine the main components of the Multidimensional Poverty Index.


This approach aims to assess poverty simultaneously on a monetary and non-monetary basis, which is based on measuring the Multidimensional Poverty Index. This is necessary to obtain a high degree of independence of information on employment, poverty, health, malnutrition, vulnerable population groups and geographical targeting when providing assistance to the “invisible” statistical groups.


Worth recalling, in January-March 2017, 750 households in all regions of Tajikistan completed a new questionnaire developed by experts of the World Bank and other partners, together with the national experts of the Agency for Statistics.
