Census: UNFPA, UK in 1bn/- Data Analysis Links 

UNFPA is working with the British High Commission to provide $461,000 (1bn/-) for post numeration census activities. The statistician general and head of NBS, Dr. Albina Chuwa, told a statistics stakeholders’ meeting in Dar es Salaam yesterday that the funding is intended to strengthen post census data analysis. She praised UNFPA support for NBS in generating data that has been helpful to decision makers, pointing at a common goal in responding to ongoing national agenda, notably the five-year development plan, the 2025 Vision and preparations for Vision 2050. The Census Commissioner, Anne Makinda, applauded UNFPA and the High Commission, as having enabled other donor agencies to engage with NBS.
