Description Harmonization of regional governance, peace and security statistics via common household survey and administrative data modules. A Specialized Technical Group (STG) on Governance, Peace and Security Statistics was established in May 2012, chaired by the Kenya National Board of Statistics, constituted by NSO representatives from all regions, and supported by UNDP. Four data-collection instruments have been developed by this Group through several expert meetings (with inputs from DIAL/IRD, the Afrobarometer, UNODC, the Mo Ibrahim Foundation and other experts) – namely two ‘add-on’ household survey modules (one on Governance and one on Peace & Security) and likewise two administrative data collection instruments.
