ContextThe United Nations Moldova, in partnership with the Government of Moldova represented by the National Bureau of Statistics, are implementing the Joint Project on Strengthening the National Statistical System of RM (a joint initiative of UNDP, UN Women, UNICEF, UNFPA and ILO) which aims at improving data collection, production, dissemination and use of disaggregated statistical information with particular attention to national needs and official statistics overall conformity with international, in particular EU, standards.
At present, there is no institutionalized mechanism of training on statistical literacy for certain groups of data users focused on understanding, interpreting and applying the data for policy monitoring and analysis. Therefore, one of the Project’s targets for 2012 includes the institutionalisation of the national capacity building effort in the field of statistics, tailored for such data users as public servants and mass-media, through identification of such mechanisms which would ensure the sustainability of the undertaken educational effort and which will result in qualitative improvement of the data use. The most straight and easiest interventions in the education sector for constant and basic statistical literacy could be done at the level of education institutions (higher education or lifelong learning /vocational training) through comprehensive reviews and qualitative improvements of adults’ education curricula.
