  • 1. Statistics for Policy Making A European Perspective Integration – knowing, measuring, evaluating Rome 17-18 June 2013 Giulio Di Blasi – Policy Officer DG Home Affairs
  • 2. • Governments are very keen on amassing statistics. They collect them, add them, raise them to the highest power, take the cube root and prepare wonderful diagrams. But you must never forget that every one of these figures comes in the first instance from the village watchman in India, who just puts down what he damn pleases • Josiah Stamp
  • 3. What is my presentation about
  • 4. Solid bridges
  • 5. Watchmen
  • 6. And traffic jams
  • 7. In the Commission we use statistics for: • (a) Policy Making • (b) Operations • (c) Evaluation&Communication
  • 8. Policy Making (1) • The early school leaving rate in Italy remains well above the EU average. • The early school leaving rate declined further in 2012 – to 17.6%, from 18.2% in 2011 – but remains markedly above the EU average of 12.8% and the Europe 2020 target of 15-16%. With a rate of 44% in 2011, third-country nationals weigh heavily on the overall early school leaving score in Italy. While there is not yet evidence of a comprehensive strategy to address early school leaving, short-term action to tackle this issue could be taken through the Cohesion Action Plan,19 • Commission Staff Working Document

Policy Making (2) • The Commission proposes to move from the current system of annual programming within a multiannual framework in line with broadly defined political priorities to multiannual programming preceded by a 'policy dialogue'. At the start of the next Multiannual Financial Framework, the Commission will initiate a single senior-level policy dialogue on home affairs funding with the individual Member States […] • By involving the central responsible authority of each participating State and focusing on how it will use EU funding to contribute to achieving all EU home affairs policy objectives, the policy dialogue will lead to a better focus on objectives, results and impacts rather than inputs and outputs. • Building an open and secure Europe: the home affairs budget for 2014-2020
  • 10. Operations • Article 33 A mechanism for early warning, preparedness and crisis management • • Where, based in particular on the information gathered by EASO pursuant to Regulation (EU) 439/2010 the Commission establishes that the application of this Regulation may be jeopardised due to either the identification of a substantiated risk of particular pressure on a Member State’s asylum system and/or because of problems in the functioning of the asylum system of a Member State the Commission, in cooperation with EASO, shall make recommendations to that Member State inviting it to draw up a preventive action plan.

  • 16. To conclude
  • 17. • Statistics play a crucial part in bridging the knowledge gap and influence European policy making but… • (a) they need to be coherent • (b) they need to be comparable • (c) they need to be credible • Therefore the European Commission is engaged to build European Statistical Consensus with common definition, upstream training and analytical methodologies also on contextual factors
