The International Household Survey Network (IHSN) Question Bank Application was piloted in Rwanda in December 2015, supported by PARIS21 staff.

For this purpose a workshop was held with the National Institute of Statistics in Rwanda (NISR) from 1-4 December. The following week PARIS21 attended the start of the UNSD country consultation process to inventory available data for responding to the SDGs. This meeting served to introduce the NSDS SDG Data Module which will be piloted in Rwanda.

The Question Bank covers issues from concepts in indicators (definitions) to questionnaire formulation. The World Bank will be implementing this application and will continue to work with the NISR to put their metadata content on-line (in PDF format). The NISR already has many of these items available in its own metadata manual. The Question Bank will help in contextualizing the process and making it more dynamic. The World Bank will be following up on the process directly with the NISR.
