On behalf of the Antigua and Barbuda Statistics Division, we are very pleased to announce the launch of our website. Freshly designed with an interactive look and an intuitive navigation; this website is your ultimate reference tool to find information, including:
- the latest statistics on a wide range of subjects;
- a set of ready-to-use key indicators;
- a catalogue of the latest publications; and

Statistics help us to make knowledgeable decisions on many aspects of our lives. They provide a solid foundation to develop better policies and programs to improve the well-being of our family, our community and our work life as well.

Our vision is to be a relevant, responsive and respected authority for official statistics.
We exist to produce quality official statistics by coordinating and engaging a national statistical system of users, producers and suppliers of data within a statistical development process defined by professionalism, integrity, transparency, accountability and advocacy.
