Under the law N° 45/2013 of 16/06/2013 (Chapter 3), on the ORGANIZATION OF STATISTICAL ACTIVITIES IN RWANDA, statistical surveys that are nationwide or covering at least one whole province, should have a prior approval from the NISR.

The review and approval of NISR is focused on the necessity and quality of the methodologies to be used. The purpose of the review is to ensure the accuracy of the data to be generated from the survey following statistical standards. Likewise, the review intends to avoid duplication that will lead to undue response burden to the households or institutions and waste of resources.

Government agencies and private entities are advised to submit the survey proposals and questionnaires to the NISR at least two (2) months before the data collection.
