Office of the Chief Government Statistician Zanzibar
The Office of the Chief Government Statistician (OCGS) Zanzibar coordinates the production of official statistics, provides high quality statistical data and information and promotes their use in planning, decision-making, administration, governance, monitoring and evaluation.
OCGS joined the Inclusive Data Charter (IDC) in January 2020 to strengthen their work on gender statistics.
A need to improve gender statistics comes from Zanzibar Strategy for Growth and Reduction of Poverty (ZSGRP III) and from a commitment to the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development to ensure no one is left behind.
Priorities as an Inclusive Data Charter Champion:
- To progress and improve disaggregated gender statistics in vital, migration and crime statistics.
- Work more closely with data producers in Zanzibar and build their capacity around gender statistics
