STRATEGIC PLAN 2013-2015
The Strategic Plan for development of the State Statistical Office for the period 2013-2015 represents an integral document containing the vision and mission of the Office for producing objective, timely and reliable statistical information, and for presenting the institution as the bearer of the primary tasks in the performance of the activities of state statistics.
By adhering to the principles of official statistics of the United Nations and the European Statistics Code of Practice, the State Statistical Office has founded its work on professional independence and neutrality of the institution, strict statistical standards, data confidentiality, care for respondents and for users of statistical data.
This strategic document presents the framework in which the State Statistical Office defines its primary objectives, priorities and programmes for development for the next three-year period. The ultimate goal is by achieving these programme objectives to enable the development of the State Statistical Office in order to satisfy user needs and to meet European and world standards in statistics.
The Strategy is arranged in 4 sections referring to the projected programmes for sectoral statistics, for upgrading the statistical infrastructure, for strengthening the cooperation and communication with users, continuous measurement of user needs and satisfaction, and strengthening the confidence in statistics, and for strengthening the coordination of the National Statistical System. These four general programmes are further developed into sub-programmes that give an insight into what the State Statistical Office has to accomplish in the next three years.
Some of the planned activities of the State Statistical Office will be realised through the European funds, i.e. through the IPA 2009 National Programme for Pre-Accession Assistance and IPA 2011 Multi-Beneficiary Programme, which, at the same time, will result in an even higher level of harmonisation of national statistics with EU statistics.
By promoting cooperation, innovation and efficiency, the State Statistical Office, as bearer and coordinator of activities in the frames of the national statistical system, aims to encourage all other authorised bearers to contribute in the production of objective, timely and internationally comparable statistical data.
The execution of this strategic document will become tangible by achieving the established goals of the State Statistical Office and by overcoming all challenges on the road to European integration of the Republic of Macedonia.
