National Statistical System Activities

National Statistical System

The National Statistical System (NSS) was launched in November 2006 to enhance coordination among data producers, suppliers and users on the development and implementation of a harmonized system of producing, processing and disseminating official statistics. The NSS is there to support development initiatives which require good statistics through evidence based planning, implementation, monitoring and evaluation of national and international development frameworks. Eventually, NSS puts Statistics at the Finger Tips of every planner and decision maker.
