Welcome to the CountrySTAT website
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.
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.
