The Global Partnership for Sustainable Development Data (the Global Partnership) hosted a webinar with experts from national statistical offices on how they create higher quality administrative data and as a result, better use administrative data. Administrative data is becoming a cost-effective resource for governments to produce more timely and efficient data. Despite the benefits, the potential of administrative data still remains relatively untapped. This expert clinic aims to discuss how national agencies can collaborate to strengthen the quality of administrative data for statistical purposes.

The Global Partnership was joined by experts from the National Administrative Department of Statistics of Colombia, the Slovenia Statistical Office, Statistics Norway, Cameroon National Institute of Statistics and Statistics Canada.
