Strengthening Thailand’s Statistical Management System



There's a need for the National Statistical Office to conduct a capacity assessment and embark on capacity development programme on the two units are responsible for statistical management, namely, the Statistical Management Bureau, and human resource development. Support is also needed to NSO management and staff in introducing the quality assurance systems to NSO and its statistical network organizations and in developing the Statistical Training Centre. 

UNDP aims to support the NSO to embark on this new responsibility which is crucial for the strengthening of the overall national statistical system, and fundamental for the long-term development of socio-economic statistics at national and sub-national levels and 2) ensure that the project and UNICEF's project on the NSO Capacity Assessment Study complement each other to achieve maximum synergy and impact.
