New Standing Committee on Statistics UPSC NOTE


  • The Standing Committee on Economic Statistics (SCoS) has been established with enhanced terms of reference.

  • The SCoS will review economic indicators related to industrial and services sectors, as well as labor force statistics.

  • The committee will focus on high-frequency data like the Index of Industrial Production (IIP) and the Consumer Price Index (CPI), and conduct surveys like the Economic Census and Periodic Labour Force Survey.

  • The SCoS has a broader mandate to advise the Ministry on existing surveys, identify data gaps, propose ways to fill them, and conduct pilot surveys and studies for better data capture.

  • The new committee is half the size of the previous 28-member panel responsible for reviewing economic data.

  • The SCoS includes experts like Mr. Sen, along with seven academics from esteemed institutions.

  • The SCoS can proactively work on issues beyond surveys and provide guidance to the Ministry in diverse areas.

  • The credibility of some of the National Statistical Office's (NSO) data, particularly household surveys by the National Sample Survey Office (NSSO), has been questioned in recent years.

  • The government's decision to discard survey results due to "data quality issues" has raised concerns about credibility.

  • Fresh Household Consumption Expenditure Survey (HCES) results may take time to be finalized, causing reliance on outdated data for key economic indicators.

  • The SCoS can advise the Statistics Ministry on individual surveys and data sets, address issues related to survey results and methodology, and sensitize data users about nuanced interpretation of numbers.

  • The SCoS and the National Statistical Commission must work to rebuild the credibility of India's official statistics and bridge the trust deficit surrounding data.
