7 7 How do we monitor economic changes? A continuously developing and improving national statistical system  Statistical law in 1968  A decentralized system  A tradition of secured funding of statistical activities  Uses International standards (ILO, SCN93, classifications, BoP, financial statistics, etc.)  Subscribed to IMF’s SDDS since 2005  Statistical capacity indicators of the WB (2010) :  Overall score : 76% (65% for all developing countries)  Methodology : 90% (56% for all developing countries)

8 8 Monitoring Employment  A regular national employment survey :  covering annually a sample of 1% of Moroccan households ;  captures several aspects related to labor force, employment, unemployment, under employment, etc.  The survey serves also as a platform for monitoring some basic social indicators (access to drinking water, electricity, etc.)  The results are released on a quarterly and yearly basis.  Employment is also captured through population censuses and different household surveys.

9 9 Monitoring economic activity  A set of regular business, agriculture, trade, financial, … data collection.  Economic census, Agriculture census;  Yearly business surveys covering all economic sectors ;  Public investment survey every 5 years;  The yearly business survey is deepened every 5 years to capture the interrelations between different sectors : “economic structure survey”  The results of the “economic structure survey” serve for GDP base year change every 5 years.

10 10 Monitoring economic activity  On the basis of all censuses, surveys and administrative data : National accounts are compiled following SCN93  For some sectors satellite accounts are (or will be) compiled (tourism, agriculture, education, forests).  A satellite account for households will be compiled on the basis of a new time use survey  For emerging sectors, new surveys are launched to better take them into consideration in national accounts (NGO survey, time use survey).

11 11 Monitoring economic activity The informal sector  For a more comprehensive coverage of economic activity in Morocco, informal sector surveys are carried out every 5 years.  The objective : a more precise estimate of the contribution of this sector to employment and GDP.

12 12 Main Challenges (1)  Improve and formalize coordination between different components of the NSS.  Promote evidence based decision-making through promoting the use of statistics.  Develop data production at sub national levels.  Development of administrative data.  Development of business registers.

13 13 Main Challenges (2)  Improving business surveys response rate.  Developing a quality assurance framework.  Developing environmental data collection framework and develop environmental accounting.
