Pan-African Statistics – PASII 2022-2025

The Pan-African Statistics project is part of an EU funded programme counting two projects (SOCSTAF - Social Statistics and ECOBUSAF - Economic and Business Statistics) headed by Statistics Denmark and Statistics France (INSEE) respectively. The Danish-headed project focuses on support to producing official statistics within the social domains of education, health, and labour and counts consortium partners from the NSIs of France, Finland, Spain and Poland. 

The aim of the Danish-led part of the project (SOCSTAF) is to support African integration through strengthening the African Statistical System and ensure the use of quality statistical data in the decision-making process and policy monitoring, in order to facilitate monitoring of societal progress in Africa, with a special focus on the social domain.

The project is reinforcing the capacity of selected African national statistical offices in producing good quality social statistics in fields of health, education, and labour and thus contributing to the following three outputs:

Output 1: Reliable and harmonized statistics are collected and analyzed based on international standards recognized and applied across the entire African Statistical System in a number of key sectors relevant for African integration (with disaggregation by sex, age, and disability where relevant)

Output 2: Reliable and harmonized statistics are disseminated to users and used as evidence for informed decision-making.

Output 3: The institutional capacity of the African statistical system is increased at national level.
