Workshop on Statistical Business Registers (SBR) in the Arab Countries

Amman, Jordan

Statistical business registers (SBR) are important infrastructures for statistics development. SBR can serve as a cost-effective sample frame that reduces greatly response burden. In addition, integration of data from different sources provides new information that would not otherwise exist.

ESCWA is organizing this workshop in cooperation with AITRS, UNSD and UNIDO. The Workshop activities are intended to provide a training to the region’s national statistical authorities on the recently published international guidelines on statistical business register.
