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.

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.
