Measuring Security and Satisfaction with Institutions in France The Impetus Given by the United Nations' Sustainable Development Goals
French official statistics do not consider subjects related to governance and security as part of their core business. Nonetheless, the French official statistics system is already able to produce several indicators of the 16th Sustainable Development Goal, entitled "Peace, justice and strong institutions". Some of them derive from administrative data, but most of them from victimisation surveys. In order to improve its monitoring of SDG 16, especially on the measurement of discriminations and corruption, the French official statistics system is adapting its household surveys on these subjects. However, some indicators cannot still be produced, either for technical reasons, or because international operational definitions are not yet fixed, or because official statistics hesitate to invest in new fields, notably governance, which is not always easy to understand conceptually and to measure in a robust way.
