The purpose of the paper is to discuss a few critical issues relating to the quality and reliability of databases from developing countries. This paper argues that the quality and reliability of databases from developing countries can only be improved in the long run by eliminating crippling economic controls, corruption, and rent-seeking. The policy recommendations of recent studies are critically evaluated with illustrations from socioeconomic data from selected developing countries.
