The quality of statistical data and availability on people with citizenship status problems are assessed in this chapter, which also examines state signatories data relevant to the United Nations human rights conventions. Statisticians’ involvement in developing guidelines for reports on international human rights instruments is discussed, as is the availability of the national statistical sources for people with citizenship status concerns. The use of administrative sources and population statistics for assessing the needs, characteristics, and number of people with citizenship concerns is also explored. The chapter concludes that the protection regime for people with citizenship concerns can be strengthened if statisticians cooperate with the human rights community.

Keywords:   United Nations, human rights community, statisticians, citizenship status, statistical data
