Africa Statistics Day Celebrated

The day is memorialized annually in order to increase awareness about the important role that statistics play in all aspects of social and economic development on our continent. This awareness provides an opportunity to advocate for systematic and increased use of statistics for evidence-based decision making, with a view to enhance the relevance of statistics and mainstream statistics into national development plans.
These regular festivities strengthens the awareness and trust of the public in official statistics. It serves as an advocacy tool to further support the work of statisticians across different settings, cultures, and domains. says the Acting Statistician-General Mr.Sikongo Haihambo..
