Data collection, Central Bank of Nigeria


The paper examines data collection activities of the statistical services division in collaboration with its Lagos liaison office as well as the zonal research units. The paper analyzes the survey methods applied by them. The task of easing data collection should be regarded as a continuous process. This is relevant even to the most developed economies with sophisticated technology for data collection and processing. Finally, with an improvement in the literacy level and overall appreciation of the role of reliable statistics in the country, it is believed that the public would embrace data generation and availability of relevant statistics will be accorded its proper place in our economy.
