 A focal point is a person or institution designated by the country to deal with all requests of data
used for the MDG indicators.
2.i.   Which measures were taken in your country during the last year to
       improve national coordination in the reporting of official statistics to
       international agencies?
        -Last-level statistical information system has become a
        priority in the production of statistical indicators to meet
        the commitments made by the UK vis-à-vis the UN, which
        recommends countries to periodically renew their series
        of national accounts;
        -Morocco has adhered since 2005 to the Standard Special
        Data Dissemination Standard (SDDS) IMF could meet the
        needs of increasingly growing in the field of production of
        statistical information;
        -Launching in 2004 of an integrated statistical operations
        nationwide that began with the completion of the General
        Census of Population and Housing 2004, an innovative
        step in the phase of data processing by using Automatic
        Reading of Documents. This was followed by a series of
        statistical surveys that are the main one on the living
        standards of households (2006/2007), the investigation
        of the informal sector (2006/2007) and investigation of
        structure (2007 / 2008) have focused more productive
        sectors of the economy. It was conducted in parallel with
        other operations such as the promotion of sectoral
        statistics, the reform of the index cost of living (ICV)
        which is now replaced by the index of consumer prices
        (CPI) or further innovation introduced for the collection of
        data from the National Survey on Employment, which is
        based since early 2008 on the collection method assisted
        by computer (CAPI).
        Moreover, since 2008, the Department of Statistics under
        the HCP, located in the heart of the national statistical
        information, has developed a strategy for statistical
        development for the next five years, called "Action Plan
        2008 - 2012,

        -Strengthening the legal and institutional framework of
        the national statistical system, including the revision of
        legislation on the statistical law, the National Council of
        Statistics and the national directory of businesses.
        -Organizing a regional workshop on "National Strategies
        for Statistical Development"
        support for monitoring and evaluating progress made
        towards achieving the Millennium Development Goals
        (MDGs) by 2010 and other development goals.


2.j.   Please describe current problems in your country on reporting
       mechanisms of data used for the MDG indicators to international
       agencies:

        -Strengthening the legal and institutional framework of
        the national statistical system, including the revision of
legislation on the statistical law, the National Council of
Statistics and the national directory of businesses.
- The statistical operations in terms of demographic and
health surveys are not periodic (especially health
conducted by the Ministry of Health) to assess
demographic parameters, including maternal and child
mortality (Goal 4, 5 and 6) ;
