CountrySTAT Uganda

CountrySTAT is a statistical framework and applied information system for analysis and policy-making designed in order to organize, integrate and disseminate statistical data and metadata on food and agriculture coming from different sources.

CountrySTAT gathers and harmonizes scattered institutional statistical information so that information tables become compatible with each other at the country level and with data at the international level. The main objectives are to facilitate decision-maker's access to information and to bind data sources that are currently spread throughout the different institutions.
The CountrySTAT approach is based on the application of data and metadata standards of FAOSTAT and GAUL (Global Administrative Unit Layers). Many countries have shown interest and are adopting it into their national statistical system. Furthermore, CountrySTAT is accompanied by a capacity-building strategy at country level to make the system sustainable in the long-term. CountrySTAT is networking with FAOSTAT and other sister information systems like FENIX.

CountrySTAT Uganda

The Uganda Bureau of Statistics (UBOS) is the principal agency of the government involved in the collection, analysis and dissemination of statistical data and also acts as the official source for statistical information. The national government mandate for official data publication and dissemination on the CountrySTAT web site is with the Ministry of Agriculture, Animal, Industry and Fisheries (MAAIF) with very close collaboration with UBOS. MAAIF has the mandate to produce production statistics on Crops, Livestock statistics and its related indicators, Fisheries and other Indicators in the sub-sector. Different data sets are aggregated and validated at the TWG meeting before they are published in the CountrySTAT site. UBOS is represented in both the Technical Working Group (TWG) and Secretariat to ensure the quality of the official data to be disseminated. It is through the MAAIF and UBOS that the QUALITY of the published data is ensured.
