Challenges facing the use of National Statistics Offices

advantages of using national statistics offices
Advantages of using National Statistics Offices
  • Easy institutionalisation of the process.
  • Legally authorised institution to conduct surveys in the nation. (The Central Statistical Office (CSO) is the only Institution mandated under the Census and Statistics Act, Chapter 127 to produce official statistics for the country).
  • Experience in logical flow and formulation of survey questions.
  • NSOs understand the local environment better than outsiders.
  • Coverage of lager samples during surveys
  • Centralisation of governance data.
conclusion
CONCLUSION
  • Governance Assessment should be everyone’s concern in order to establish vibrant National Statistics Offices.
  • Since Governance is a new territory for most African countries, there is need for capacity building in order for officers to understand handle its monitoring effectively.
