Capacity Building in Statistics - Population Census in Ethiopia

The availability of complete and reliable information regarding the demographic situation is essential in Countries like Ethiopia for the creation, monitoring and evaluation of development programmes.

This week a preparation and coordination mission is taking place for the project “Capacity building in statistics – Population Census” – financed by the Italian Agency for Development Cooperation (AICS) and realized in collaboration with the Italian Institute of Statistics (ISTAT) and the Central Statistical Agency of Ethiopia (CSA) – which started in June 2016 aiming to improve the quantity and quality of statistical data on the Ethiopian population.

ISTAT, during the 12 months necessary to realize this initiative, will provide technical assistance and training to the staff of CSA, investing more than 260 thousand Euros. This way, the statistical capacity of the Ethiopian institute will be improved in the analysis of the census’ results, with a specific attention to gender statistics and labour force.
