The Genetical Theory of Natural Selection.

Sharing data between the many entities that produce the data and those who turn them into statistics is becoming ever more important in today’s world. It’s no longer possible to correctly measure global production and trade, for example, without information about the global activities of multinational enterprise groups—and to get this information, data must be shared beyond national borders. UNECE, other international organizations, national statistical offices and central banks are together developing ways to share data across countries to improve economic statistics, reduce the response burden on businesses, and enable effective economic policymaking. The UNECE Task Force on Exchange and Sharing of Economic Data is working to define what data should be shared among statisticians, and how, to ensure the quality of GDP and other key economic statistics. The Task Force focuses on establishing safeguards, secure environments and clear legislation for data to be exchanged. It is devising mechanisms to ensure that such exchange is exclusively for statistical purposes, and that strict confidentiality is maintained. Meanwhile, the latest guidance on migration statistics also emphasizes the crucial importance of data sharing for producing accurate statistics on international migrant flows.
