Economic and Social Statistics
Data goes hand in hand with empowerment. High quality data, with its power to inform and drive action, is needed more than ever.
ADB acknowledges the need for reliable, timely, granular, and integrated data, as well as innovative ways to produce them, to guide economic and social development to ensure that nobody is left behind. To aid in evidence-based policymaking, ADB produces key knowledge resources and partners with statistics agencies in Asia and the Pacific to improve the region's capability to produce effective statistics.
