A sound system of Social Sector Statistics is vital to the effective development of social policy, to informed decision-making on policy issues and for evaluation of the impact of social and economic policies. Inadequacy in the system of collection and compilation of Social Statistics generated to aid the planners and policy makers can therefore constitute a major impediment to effective social development of the country. The importance of the linkages between policy development and Social Statistics points to the need for greater national priority to be given to Social Statistics. This calls for better partnership between the statisticians, the National Statistical Office and the policy makers to ensure that statistical objectives and priorities are focused on providing the data foundations necessary for effective social policy development.

 

Socio-economic Statistics thus form an important component in the development of the country and include a vast array of information on health and disease; literacy and education; standard of living and poverty; labour force and employment; status of women and gender empowerment; population parameters relevant to fertility, mortality and migration; ecology and environmental protection. Timely collection of appropriate, adequate and reliable data on the above dimensions and proper use of this in planning, implementation, monitoring, evaluation and redesign of various developmental programmes is absolutely essential if the State has to progress more rapidly and join the ranks of the most developed states in the near future.
