PRESS 2021: Dramatic increase in support to health-related data and statistics under COVID-19 while other sectors see decline
Not country specific
Overall funding to data and statistics is likely to remain stagnant in 2020. Funding to frontier technologies is accelerating amidst declining system support. Within an increasingly fragmented funding landscape, this poses risks to long-term pandemic recovery.
The PARIS21 Partner Report on Support to Statistics is the most comprehensive annual analysis of donor financial flows to data and statistics.
The aim of PRESS is to provide a full picture of international support to statistics.
The 2021 edition is the first study to analyse the evolution of development data financing during the COVID-19 pandemic and features a new section on funding to civil registration and vital statistics.
PRESS covers the commitments received by all countries to align the number with the SDG indicator 17.19.1: “Dollar value of all resources made available to strengthen statistical capacity in developing countries”
