Tool for Assessing Statistical Capacity (TASC)

TASC 2.1

The U.S. Census Bureau’s Tool for Assessing Statistical Capacity (TASC) provides a quantitative measure of the capacity of a National Statistical Office (NSO) to conduct Population and Housing Censuses or recurring household-based surveys. The primary objective of TASC is to measure the overall capacity of an NSO, as well as provide a breakdown of the areas of strength and weakness.

TASC results:

  • aid NSOs in identifying areas where improvement is needed,
  • assist NSOs and donors to justify the need for funding for training in specific areas, and
  • provide a measure of the impact of capacity building activities by being administered at two points in time, before and after.

The TASC version 2.1 is available in both paper-based and digital versions, and TASC version 2.0 is available in both English and Spanish.
