Statistics Denmark is implementing an EU-financed Twinning project with the Israeli Central Bureau of Statistics. Statistics Netherlands is also providing expertise to the project.
The objective of the Twinning project is to improve the quality and international comparability of Israel's official statistics in key domains. The specific purposes of the project are:
- to support the Israeli Central Bureau of Statistics in aligning National Accounts, Education Statistics and Survey Methodology to EU and other international organizations' standards and guidelines
- to enable the Israeli Central Bureau of Statistics to better coordinate the National Statistical System and prepare a strategic plan for official statistics, including a dissemination and communication strategy
- to help redesign the ICBS website to meet users' needs
The project ran from May 2013 to December 2014.
