CountrySTAT is a statistical framework and applied information system for analysis and policy-making designed in order to organize, integrate and disseminate statistical data and metadata on food and agriculture coming from different sources.
CountrySTAT gathers and harmonizes scattered institutional statistical information so that information tables become compatible with each other at the country level and with data at the international level. The main objectives are to facilitate decision-maker's access to information and to bind data sources that are currently spread throughout the different institutions.
The CountrySTAT approach is based on the application of data and metadata standards of FAOSTAT and GAUL (Global Administrative Unit Layers). Many countries have shown interest and are adopting it into their national statistical system. Furthermore, CountrySTAT is accompanied by a capacity-building strategy at country level to make the system sustainable in the long-term. CountrySTAT is networking with FAOSTAT and other sister information systems like FENIX.
The National institute of statistics of Rwanda is the principal agency of the Government involved in the collection, analysis and dissemination of statistical data and also acts as the official source for statistical information. The national government mandate for official data publication and dissemination on the CountrySTAT web site is with the Ministry of Agriculture and Animal Resources, with very close collaboration with National institute of statistics. The Ministry of Agriculture and Animal resources has the mandate to produce production statistics on Crops, Livestock statistics and its related indicators.
Different data sets are aggregated and validated at the technical working group (TWG) meeting before they are published on the CountrySTAT website.
CountrySTAT Rwanda is primarily composed of a team of Secretariat and technical working group members from various Ministries and Government institutions and helps in ensuring the quality of the official data to be disseminated.
