“Governments, private companies, NGOs and private individuals alike have to decide on important issues on a regular basis; such decision making requires information and frequently needs to be transparent and evidence based in order to be accepted by the wider community. No argument is evidence based without figures to back it up. These figures must be collected, analyzed and presented using non-partisan, reliable and repeatable approaches and this is the task of statisticians.” Mr. Mwangi told participants. He informed participants that preparation for 2019 population and housing census is in top gear and enumeration will be paperless.
