2007 Africa Symposium on statistical development

The Africa Symposia on Statistical Development is an African-driven initiative that seeks to work through the ECA, with support from the “Friends of the ECA” (Egypt, Ghana, Kenya, Mozambique, South Africa, Senegal, Rwanda and Tunisia), to help restore statistical development in Africa.A work programme has been developed that will in the first instance, given critical political intervention and support, encourage the undertaking of a census in every African country towards enriching the information base on which decision-making in Africa can be made.
