Budding NSA

Soon after the successes of the user-producer workshop that took place earlier this month, the  National Statistics Agency has received much attention concerning its actual operations. “The National Statistics Agency is responsible for providing official statistics. Official in the sense of how the information is recorded and analysed; there is a set methodology. The idea is that the NSA becomes the official custodian of official statistics. Other institutions which were compiling statistics that the country deemed official will in future either continue compiling the statistics using NSA’s criteria or will hand over the compilations to the statistics agency.” said Tom Alweendo Director General of the National Planning Commission.
