Data and Statistics

About this event

Data and statistics on the crafts sector are in great demand and yet are rarely published. National statistics and surveys often embed a wealth of information that is related to crafts; it is only a matter of knowing where to look. This workshop will provide the tools to find and use that data.

Daily 12.00-14.30 Monday 9 and Tuesday 10 August 2021

Data and statistics on the crafts sector are in great demand and yet are rarely published. But it is often said that there is a ‘shortage’ of data on crafts, but this is simply not correct. National statistics and surveys often embed a wealth of information that is related to crafts; it is only a matter of knowing where to look for such relevant information. More specifically, the crafts sector can also conduct dedicated surveys to establish baselines, identify trends and use the analysis to advocate for evidence-based interventions and policy formulation.

This workshop aims to:

- identify the craft community’s needs in terms of data and statistics;

- guide best practice in extracting data from secondary sources and in carrying out dedicated surveys;

- provide advice on how best to use the data to influence policy makers and monitor developments; and

- to allow craft activities and communities to be seen with the overall context of UNESCO’s Culture 2030 programme and the global Sustainable Development Goals
