Welcome to TYPSS

The Ten Year Pacific Statistics Strategy (TYPSS) 2010 – 2020 was adopted by leaders of Pacific Islands Countries and Territories in 2009.

TYPSS was developed in recognition of the need for a comprehensive plan to drive improvement and development of statistics in the Pacific region.

TYPSS is the regional governance mechanism to oversee & manage the program of work in the identified priorities for statistics across PICT.

Six objectives were identified for the first phase.

Objective 1: Pacific Island Countries and Territories (PICT) are undertaking key statistical collections as scheduled;

Objective 2: PICT are producing the agreed core set of statistics across key sectors;

Objective 3: PICT have their own capacity or are accessing regional capacity to undertake agreed core and some specialist statistical functions;

Objective 4: Pacific national and regional statistics are accessible and are being utilised;

Objective 5: New and innovative statistical tools and systems have been introduced;

Objective 6: National and regional statistics governance is functioning effectively.

 

Five objectives were identified for the second phase.

Objective 1:  Pacific island countries and territories have the technical capacity (either in-house capacity or through timely accessible technical support), to manage and implement all core statistical collections, including key administrative databases, as required by national development plans, including national strategies for the development of statistics.

Objective 2:  Pacific island countries and territories are producing the agreed core set of statistics across key sectors including but not restricted to economics, population, CRVS, education and health, as required by their national plans and agreed-upon regional and international reporting frameworks, with timely analysis and dissemination of results to national users.

Objective 3:  All countries and territories have in place some form of national statistics strategy or plan in line with their national development strategies.

Objective 4:  National level statistic stakeholders are advised on an ongoing basis about emerging statistical tools and systems, processes for effective data analysis, communication and quality assurance and Pacific interaction and proposed responses to international statistical standards.

Objective 5:  National and regional statistics governance is functioning effectively
