2011 ICP progress report to the executive board as of October 30, 2012 (Inglês)

The purpose of this progress report is to provide the Executive Board with a summary of the status of the 2011 Round of the International Comparison Program (ICP) at global and regional levels as well as major activities undertaken since the submission of the July 2012 Interim Progress Report. During the period between July 26, 2012 and October 30, 2012, the Global Office conducted the 7th meeting of the Regional Coordinators, the 7th meeting of the Technical Advisory Group, participated in regional capacity-building activities, prepared outreach material, and provided technical and financial assistance to regions. The Global office also continued its data validation process, having received additional provisional country data and metadata from regions. At the regional level, most of the participating countries have completed the 2011 main household consumption price survey, and as planned from the inception of the program, the rest are expected to complete their surveys before the end of 2012. Albeit timetable differences exist between the regions, all the Special Surveys –related to other GDP components - are scheduled to be completed by the second quarter of 2013. The Regional Coordinators continue to support countries in collecting data and metadata, and devote more time and effort to iterative validation activities through regional workshops, with assistance from the Global Office. While no burning issue is being reported herein, Board members may wish to urge the Regional and National Coordinating agencies at all levels to keep the momentum of finalizing the collection and validation of data and metadata and submitting them to the Global Office to ensure the quality and timeliness of the 2011 ICP. The body of this report comprises four parts: (i) Governance Activities; (ii) Update on the implementation of the 2011 ICP in terms of data collection, submission and validation, risk assessment, and preparation of capacity-building and outreach materials; (iii) Data access policy; and (iv) Funding and technical assistance support.
