Project Description
The objective of the Angola Statistics Project is to strengthen the capacity of the National Institute for Statistics to fill data gaps, improve statistical production, and enhance statistical dissemination practices. There are three components to the project, the first component being institutional reform and capacity. The first component will support the transformation of INE into a modern provider of statistics. This component includes three sub-components: institutional reform, ICT and statistical infrastructure, and human capacity. The second component is the data production and dissemination. The project focuses on closing the most important data gaps by creating a modern statistical monitoring infrastructure for agricultural production and welfare based on a sequence of surveys. Furthermore, statistical production is improved by thoroughly updating national accounts. This component includes four subcomponents: national account statistics, welfare monitoring system, agricultural production monitoring system, and analysis and dissemination. Finally, the third component is the project management. This project component will provide funding for those functions and their implementation. The unit will be supported by international consultants, if needed, with a focus on building the capacity of the unit over the initial phase of the project.
