on the findings of the UN Data Revolution Report, “A World that Counts,” and the original research
performed by many other organizations. Thanks to colleagues within the World Bank and external experts
who have contributed to and commented on this paper in draft. We would like recognize the financial
contribution of Trust Fund for Statistical Capacity Building which made this research possible.
