En materia de seguridad social se ha avanzado en esta dirección, buscando proveer información estadística relevante en aras de comprender mejor las necesidades de la población. No obstante, el impulso ha sido heterogéneo, y con resultados tan específicos, que resulta difícil realizar comparaciones, y en algunas ocasiones, no se cuenta con disponibilidad práctica de información sobre temas relevantes de la seguridad social.

In social security, great strides have been made in order to provide relevant statistical information and better understand the needs of the population. However we have had mixed results, in some cases, information is so specific that it is difficult to make comparisons and, and in other cases, there is no practical availability of information on relevant social security issues.

Having comprehensive and homogeneous statistical systems will help to illustrate the demands for precise information, in terms definition and specificity, as well as the responses that can be given to the different social problems related to social security. In right of this, it can be said that the creation of such a system offers a frame of reference for the interpretation analyses, defining and measuring these in accordance with standardised rules, which are comparable and which facilitate the oversight of good governance practices. Moreover, statistical systems will allow for suggestions as to the performance of public policy measures as it relates to social security and will offer timely information to insured persons.
