In 2002, the United Nations continued its statistical work programme, mainly through the Statistical Commission and the United Nations Statistics Division. In March, the Commission approved actions by the Division to support population and housing censuses to be undertaken by countries between 2005 and 2014; emphasized that the revised Integrated Environmental and Economic Accounting handbook should be published as soon as possible; endorsed the recommendations of the Friends of the Chair to establish a standing committee for statistical indicators with the Statistics Division as the secretariat; expressed appreciation for the improved quality of statistics in the Human Development Report of the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP); and welcomed the manual on government finance statistics published by the International Monetary Fund (IMF).
