Policy maker training and communicating census data to improve data use in the Maldives

Ensuring that data are used is a vital component of the data value chain. However, transmitting data and statistics to end users can be a challenge. The Maldives Bureau of Statistics has been putting great efforts into data use and recently worked with PARIS21 and Statistics Sweden to target policy makers within the Maldivian parliament as well as developing and refining a communications strategy to ensure that the results of the country's recent census are used to inform public discourse.
