The ninth Scientific Council of IMSEE (Monaco Institute of Statistics and Economic Studies), met under its director, Lionel Galfré, to discuss several issues, including the forthcoming 2016 census results to be announced in the next few weeks, the issue of the Monegasque SIREN/SIRET number and the possibility of Monaco’s participation in the OECD International Programme for the Monitoring of Student Achievement (PISA). Other subjects addressed on Monday, February 27, touched upon the numerous studies and surveys by IMSEE – counting the barometer of the retail trade, GDP results for 2015 and the opportunity for Monaco to participate or not in international statistical surveys.
For the record, IMSEE was created in January 2011 and its Scientific Council has an advisory role. In particular, it considers the needs to be met and studies to be carried out, the state of the statistical system and the annual survey programme. It is composed of 11 members, whose term of office is three years. It is currently chaired by Professor Pierre-André Chiappori.
