CountrySTAT is a collection of software tools, methods, and standards to facilitate the acquisition, management, and analysis of large, diversified and distributed sets of data. It supports multiple-sourced data integration and harmonization according to international standards and contributes to improving data quality and reliability. Through national and regional CountrySTAT projects, FAO forms partnerships with statistical offices and the Ministries of Agriculture, Fisheries and Forestry among others to introduce the system and build the national capacity to dissemination internationally comparable official statistics. In each country, the National CountrySTAT Secretariat collaborates with the National Technical Working Group to ensure consensus on the official data to be uploaded and to make this data available to users in a timely manner with metadata to support its reliability.
