Latest data: Qualitative survey about Public Opinion on Future Innovations, Science and Technology (September 2014)
2. Data from national surveys (Romania)
Data collected form the EU-funded project State of the Nation – designing an innovative instrument for supporting public policies (SIPOCA 11), and being of public availability.
About the project:
On April, 7, 2016, the Secretariat-General of the Government (SGG) / Center for Analysis and Strategy, in partnership with the National University of Political Studies and Public Administration (SNSPA), launched the project “State of the Nation. Designing an innovative instrument for supporting public policies” (SIPOCA 11).
The project was co-financed through the European Social Fund (ESF) through the Operational Programme Administrative Capacity (OPAC), priority axis 1: Effective functioning of the administration and the judiciary, specific objective 1.1: Developing and introducing joint systems and standards in public administration for optimizing decisional processes focused on citizens and the business environment, in agreement with the Strategy for Consolidating Public Administration 2014-2020 (SCAP).
A. The Aggregator of Multidisciplinary Statistical Data
The project “State of the Nation – designing an innovative instrument for supporting public policies” aims to create an aggregator of multidisciplinary statistical data (since 1990 until now), which can be used to produce strategic documents and support decision-making processes. Despite various organisations collecting disparate and unsynchronised data from various fields, at this moment in Romania the central administration does not have access to a database integrating all public data which would be relevant for supporting decisions. In this respect, the project contributes to solving one of the most acute problems of central administration in Romania – limited institutional capacity for decision-making and public policies design
B. Periodically generating sociological data on public perception (barometers of opinion)
