Data deficit

BRIDGETOWN, Barbados – An official of one of the United Nations agencies has expressed concern about the dearth of social data in the Caribbean region.
UNICEF’s Representative for Barbados and the Eastern Caribbean, Khin-Sandi Lwin, made the point yesterday morning while addressing those gathered for the opening of the Multiple Indicator Cluster Survey (MICS), Data Analysis Workshop in the conference room of the Baobab Towers.
“We need to make sure that the data we have is really something that makes sense, is comparable with what you may have already collected through the administrative system, and ultimately comparable with other countries that are doing the Multiple Indicator Cluster Survey. Needless to say we are in this with you, because social data is very, very limited in the Caribbean,” she said.
