This chapter provides a cross-cutting summary of previous chapters and a more explicit vision for health statistics in the 21st century. It argues that in order to develop enhanced national health statistics enterprises, four conditions must be met: first, a clear and explicit mission for the health statistics enterprise; second, use of an overarching conceptual framework; third, consensus on core values; and fourth, agreement on a set of basic principles for further development and reform of the enterprise. Strategies for meeting these four conditions are discussed.

Keywords:   health statistics enterprise, population health statistics, public health practice, mission, conceptual framework, core values
