African development leadership is set on African Statistics Day, on 18th November, to raise awareness of governments, international agencies, and the community-at-large to the importance of statistics in a nation’s progress. The absence of reliable, up-to-date statistical information in African countries limits the application of practical development strategies on the continent. To highlight the issue, this year the focus of African Statistics Day is “Managing for Development Results: the Role of Statistical Information.”

The UNECA produced a poster to mark the celebrations, available in English and French.
