The 2022–2023 biennial programme of regional and international cooperation activities of the Statistical Conference of the Americas of the Economic Commission for Latin America and the Caribbean is framed within the Strategic Plan 2015–2025, which established as the pillars of action of the Conference the achievement of more robust institutions and a stronger governing role for national statistical offices; the development of human resources and statistical production in order to ensure quality; and regional and international coordination and cooperation for the development of official statistics in the region. 

At its twenty-first meeting, the Executive Committee of the Statistical Conference of the Americas of the Economic Commission for Latin America and the Caribbean will review progress in the implementation of the biennial programme of regional and international cooperation activities, 2022–2023, of the Statistical Conference of the Americas of ECLAC. It will also discuss recent experiences in population censuses in the countries of the region and will analyse the outlook in countries that are about to conduct them.

In addition, a side event on measuring development “beyond GDP” will address the prospects for improving the measurement of GDP as part of the 2025 update of the System of National Accounts as well as possible complementary indicators for measuring the well-being of people and the planet.

    10:35 to 13:10
    Recent progress in the implementation of population and housing censuses

    Much of the region is in the midst of conducting population and housing censuses. Ten countries in Latin America and the Caribbean are expected to complete this statistical operation in 2022. The usual challenges of implementing censuses, such as the burdensome organizational demands on national statistical offices and the deployment of substantial human and financial resources, have been compounded amid the coronavirus disease (COVID-19) pandemic, which in many cases has forced the postponement or redesign of census processes. Under this agenda item, countries that have recently carried out their censuses, along with those countries soon to undertake this important statistical operation, will present their experiences, so that good practices can be identified with a view to ensuring the successful implementation of the next round of censuses.
