The United Nations National Quality Assurance Frameworks Manual for Official Statistics was adopted by the Statistical Commission of the Economic and Social Council of the United Nations in March 2019, and welcomed as an important contribution for guiding countries in the implementation of a national quality assurance framework, including for new data sources, new data providers, and data and statistics on the Sustainable Development Goal indicators. Building on and replacing the generic template and guidelines adopted in 2012, the Manual contains recommendations on quality assurance for official statistics, the United Nations National Quality Assurance Framework and practical guidance for developing and implementing a national quality assurance framework. The Manual is intended for use by anyone interested in or working on quality assurance of official statistics.

Quality assurance in the global statistical system

9.1. Chapter 9 describes the purpose of the global statistical system and identifies the commitments and obligations of countries and international and regional organizations to jointly assure the quality of data and statistics published at the global level. This joint work is ongoing in the different statistical domains and their specialized forums. However, the monitoring of the SDGs gives this task a new urgency, as the global and regional monitoring is to be based on national data and statistics. In addition, the scope of the SDG indicators is wide, and their production involves most or all members of an NSS.
