HIGHLIGHTS OF THE AFRICA STATISTICS WEEK
Uganda Bureau of Statistics (UBOS) joined other Africa National Statistical Organisations (NSOs) to celebrate the Africa Statistics Week from 15th -18th November 2021. The annual event is intended to increase statistical awareness in the respective countries. As UBOS commemorated the 2021 Africa Statistics Week, her major Objective was to further increase public visibility, awareness and appreciation of quality statistics and their contribution to the attainment of National goals and priorities.
During the celebrations week that climaxes on the 18th of November, the Bureau engages in a number of activities. To the Statisticians, this day means a lot. It's the day that we celebrate what we do, a day that we are celebrated. Generally it's a day of loving, appreciating and devising means of making what we do better. To the users of statistics, it's a day that we get to meet the producers and providers of statistics, a day to share and better understand statistics. The theme for the 2021 Africa Statistics Week was 'Modernizing Statistical Systems for Socio-cultural Development in Africa".
The events were spearheaded by a joint team led by UBOS staff, ESRI and Development Partners such as UNFPA, USAID, UNWOMEN, UNICEF, UNWOMEN and FAO.
