The Asia-Pacific Stats Café Series on "Building Sustainable Statistical Business Registers" was held on Monday, 14 June 2021, 14:00-15:30 hours (GMT+7).
Statistical business registers (SBRs) have been a core feature in many countries' national statistical systems. Statistical business registers come in many shapes and sizes, but ultimately serve as a repository of data on enterprises from various data sources for use in statistical purposes. Developing SBRs that can respond to disruptive shifts in the economy requires long-term strategic planning and continued commitments from the National Statistics Office (NSO) and their data providers. Enhancing the relevance of SBRs hinges on improving its timeliness and coverage, and increasing capacity to be integrated with administrative systems and other statistical infrastructure.
