Standing Committee on Statistics (SCoS) UPSC NOTE


Standing Committee on Statistics (SCoS)

  • The government has replaced the Standing Committee on Economic Statistics, set up in late 2019, with a Standing Committee on Statistics.

  • Pronab Sen has been named the new chair of the panel.

  • The move comes after the previous round of household surveys on consumption expenditure and employment was discarded due to concerns about “data quality”.

  • The new panel is said to have a broader mandate to review the framework and results of all surveys conducted under the National Statistical Office (NSO).

  • The SCoS — with “enhanced terms of reference” vis-à-vis the SCES, “to ensure more coverage”

  • It has 10 official members, and four non-official members who are eminent academics. The panel can have up to 16 members.

  • SCoS will address the issues raised from time to time on the subject, results and methodology for all surveys.

  • The terms of reference of the SCoS include identification of data gaps that need to be filled by official statistics, along with a strategy to plug those gaps.

  • It has been mandated to explore the use of administrative statistics to improve data outcomes. 

  • While the panel will help finalise survey results, the NSC will have the ultimate authority to approve the publication of those results.
