Supporting the Cambodian 2011 Economic Census

   The SBJ has been providing support to the National Institute of Statistics (NIS), Ministry of Planning, Cambodia, through an international technical cooperation project. The goal is to build up the capacity of NIS to implement the Cambodian Economic Census of March 2011. The project is funded and coordinated by the Japan International Cooperation Agency (JICA). The organizations involved in the project include the SBJ, the Statistical Research and Training Institute*), the National Statistics Center*), and private consultancy agencies.

   *) The Statistical Research and Training Institute is the central training organization on official statistics belonging to the Ministry of Internal Affairs and Communications. The National Statistics Center is the organization specialized in statistical data processing for the Government as well as the SBJ.

   This is the first-ever Economic Census in Cambodia. The SBJ has been supporting this survey from the planning stage by dispatching the staff on a quarterly basis. Besides this short term help, the SBJ has also been accepting NIS staff as trainees in Japan. After implementation of the field survey, the SBJ will continue supporting data-processing including computer programming, analysis and dissemination of the results.
