Use of statistics on cooperatives in national policy making
This report on the “Use of statistics on cooperatives in national policy making”, prepared by Dr. Johnston Birchall, is the latest addition to the work in advancing understanding on statistics on cooperatives and their use in national policy documents and processes. The report focuses on the user perspective, looking to the ways in which these statistics on cooperatives are used in the eight countries studied. It provides an unprecedented view on the different ways in which statistics on cooperatives can be used at the country level by different types of users. It also puts forward a set of recommendations to international organizations such as the ILO to further increase their engagement with their constituents and partners at the national level.
