Latin America and Caribbean Statistical Systems (英语)

This result profile talks about how better statistical systems help tailor poverty reduction programs in Latin America and Caribbean. Meaningful and lasting reductions in poverty require a clear understanding of the scope of the challenge something that is impossible without accurate and timely data about populations and living standards. The International Bank for Reconstruction and Development (IBRD) has for more than a decade worked with countries in Latin America and the Caribbean to develop or improve the collection and analysis of statistics. These efforts have helped tailor poverty reduction efforts to countries’ needs. At least 20 countries can now correctly estimate poverty data as a result of collaboration with the Bank.
