Regional Workshop on core Statistics/indicators of development including the Pacific Headline SDG indicators

Noumea, New Caledonia
Kind of event


Under the Ten Year Pacific Statistics Strategy (TYPSS) Phase 2 Objective 2, Pacific island countries and territories (PICTs) are tasked to produce an agreed core set of statistics across key sectors including but not restricted to economics, population, civil registration and vital statistics (CRVS), education and health, as required by their national plans and agreed-upon regional and international reporting frameworks such as the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), with timely analysis and dissemination of results to national and external users. So far, PICTs have not collectively agreed on this “core set of statistics” to guide new data collection. Given the current focus around SDG monitoring/reporting, especially around the so called Pacific Headline SDG Indicators (PHI), there is now an opportunity to engage with relevant stakeholders in the process that would lead to collective agreement on core statistics/indicators.


Using development statistics previously defined and approved from various technical and specialist sector agencies, including the SDG Pacific Headline Indicators, the objective is to present, discuss, and select indicators that may be relevant for development planning, monitoring, evaluation and reporting in the Pacific countries. This work is proposed to be undertaken within the framework of TYPSS Phase 2 (2015–2017).

Expected Outcome

The expected workshop output is a draft list of core statistics covering main sectors, including workshop endorsed Pacific SDG Headline Indicators. This list will underpin statistical work in the Pacific Region for the period until 2030.
