Overview of the Statistics Division

The Statistics Division in the Ministry of Finance and Corporate Governance was established in 1975 by the General Statistics Act. The Division aims to provide high-quality statistics to a wide variety of users including the government, business community, public, media, regional and international agencies, and academia among others. The main functions are data collection, data processing, and compilation, data analysis, data publication, and dissemination of official statistics.

Nationally, the Division consults with key public sector, private sector, civil society and non-government organisations that contribute to the production of official statistics.
