CARICOM's Selected Economic Indicators
 

This report started out simply as an attempt to make available for both internal and external users, key economic indicators of CARICOM Member States in a single publication.

As the report developed and the problems of compiling a consistent and reliable data set across all Member States were exposed, the publication grew into an attempt to bring to the fore the issues of harmonisation of statistics in the Region.

Harmonisation of statistics demands, or necessitates, that we have common data with harmonised or equivalent definitions that can be reliably compared across all Member States.  With the creation of the CARICOM Single Market and Economy (CSME), the achievement of harmonisation of statistics is a crucial concern at the Regional and National levels.  The monitoring of the performance of the CSME is only possible if there is a core set of statistics that are comparable and timely. Hence, the analysis in this report takes the form of a presentation of the conceptual framework of the data to assess the current status of the economic statistical system and to identify the gaps and deficiencies that can militate against the achievement of this goal of harmonisation of statistics in the CARICOM Region.  In addition, a study of some of the trends highlighted may lead to the question of data reliability and accuracy, which may stimulate the need to re-examine the data at the source.

It is obvious that a lot more work is required, but this publication makes an initial effort to embark on the task of going deeper into the methodologies in use in the Region, and producing a core set of socio-economic, environment and eventually a set of sustainable development statistics indicators.
