  • Over time, the unit evolved and was renamed the New Sudan Centre for Statistics and Evaluation (NSCSE) in 2003 under the then SPLM/SPLA administration in the then SPLM-controlled areas of Southern Sudan. The Centre was established with a mandate to develop the necessary capacity to become the professional source and effective provider of official statistical information for the SPLM-controlled areas.
  • This was in response to the urgent need for basic statistical data in order to support decision-making and enable programmes and policy monitoring in the South.

importance of the census in sudan what it is used for and why
Importance of the census in Sudan: What it is used for and why?
  •  In Sudan, the last successful national population census dates back more than twenty years. The Fifth Population Census of Sudan was the country's most ambitious and important statistical project ever.
  • The preparation and execution of the census was a key requirement for the organization of the mid-term general elections, and its completion was a significant milestone in the implementation of the Statistical Information Strategy that is outlined in the Joint Assessment Mission Sudan.
  • Until the census has been successfully completed, all survey-based statistics was provisional and subject to doubt due to the lack of any complete sample frame.
