Reflections on China's Statistical System Reform
- 经济学院－已发表论文 
我国现行统计体制主要存在以下几方面的缺陷:统计法规体系不够完善;从中央和地方的关系看,上下级之间责、权、利划分不明确;政府综合统计系统和部门统计系统之间的职责不清,关系不顺,缺少强有力的协调;政府统计系统内部管理体制的设置不尽合理。我国统计体制改革的目标模式应当是:建立符合我国国情、与我国经济和政治体制相适应的,高度协调一致,既有集中也有分散,具有独立性和中立性,能够满足政府多层次决策和社会公众需要的精干高效的统计体制。The limitations of current statistical system in China are mainly as follows: Firstly, China's statistical law and regulation system are not complete enough. Secondly, from the perspective of the relationship between central and local agencies, the dividing of responsibilities, rights and gains between the superior agencies and their subordinate ones of the comprehensive statistical system of the government is not clear. Thirdly, the dividing of the responsibilities between comprehensive and sector statistical system is not clear, the relations of the two systems are not good, the communications between the two systems are not sufficient, and they lack effective coordination. Fourthly, the design of the internal management mechanism of the government statistical system is not reasonable. The ideal mode of China's statistical system reform should be: to build a simplified and efficient statistical system which is also independent, neutral, suitable for China's practical situation, and satisfies the needs of government multiple decision-making as well as the public.
