Statistics Department
This department serves as the State’s Central Statistical Agency akin to the National Bureau of Statistics at the Federal Level. In liaison with Departments for Planning, Research, and Statistics in the Line Ministries and Local Government Councils, the department serves as the data bank for the state. It undertakes periodic statistical publications such as the Statistical Year Book, Facts and Figures, and periodic statistical surveys such as the CWIQ Survey and Market Calendars. It is envisaged that the Department will be upgraded to the Status of a State Bureau for Statistics following the development and approval of the State Statistical Master Plan.
