Integrated Data and Information Management for Social Protection - Case study 2: Chile

Chile’s Registro Social de Hogares (RSH, translated as Social Registry of Households; previously, before January 2016, Sistema Integrado de Información Social (SIIS), or Integrated System for Social Information) is often cited as one of the most advanced examples of integrated data management across the social protection sector and beyond. This case study explores the key characteristics of this well-established yet continuously evolving social registry, which incorporates data on 12.4 million people, equivalent to 71.7 per cent of Chile’s population (March 2016) .
