About National Statistics and Information Authority

BACKGROUND
National Statistics and Information Authority (NSIA), formerly known as Central Statistics Organization (CSO) was established in year 1351 as an independent governmental administration to create an integrated scientific system for statistics, ensuring harmonization and coordination of all statistical and information management activities of Afghanistan. Since its establishment, NSIA conducts population census and national statistical surveys and coordinates with partners including government institutions, international development partners, non-governmental organizations, research institutions and agencies other than state to prevent duplication of information and statistics. The organization collaborates with national government agencies in collection, compilation and publication of statistical information including data and statistics derived from their activities. Also NSIA independently collects, compiles, analyses and publishes national commercial, financial, social, economic, environmental, information technology and in general the living condition of Afghan people. In 1397, the national government of Afghanistan introduced two new mandates to NSIA’s functional roles, i.e., geospatial information management and information systems management and coordination.
NSIA supports and promotes the development of integrated social and economic statistics and supports partner government institutions in the area of geographic information systems and information systems. NSIA also provides technical support to other agencies and facilitates standard procedures and policies in the areas of statistics, geospatial information and information systems. for conducting research such as sampling frames. To fulfil the requirement and need of modern statistical demands, NSIA is mandated to introduce new reforms in the area of human resource management and strengthen its institutional capacity. NSIA coordinates and collaborates with partner agencies to establish standards, framework and statistical units for unified data and information management. Currently ongoing efforts are underway to further strengthen NSIA’s institutional capacity to adapt, utilize and integrate best-practices and processes into its existing structures.
