Objetivos

a) General objective

Consolidate a regional peer review methodology institutionalized within the framework of the
Statistical Conference of the Americas of ECLAC, based on the analysis of regional references such as the
Code of Good Practice in Statistics for Latin America and the Caribbean, and international peer review
methodologies such as that of Eurostat. 

b) Specific objectives

  • Update the Code of Good Practice in Statistics for Latin America and the Caribbean, using as a reference the codes of good practices of the countries in the region and the challenges in terms of producing statistical information, to ensure it is suited to the new data ecosystem.
  • Prepare the methodological document and the necessary instruments for the development of the peer review, according to the outcomes of the analysis of international benchmarks and implementation experiences in the countries.
  • Implement a pilot test of the proposed peer review methodology to identify opportunities for improvement and generate a basis for its implementation in the countries of Latin America and the Caribbean.
