What is Nigeria’s Largest Statistics Portal?
For researchers and data-mining specialists, data is of huge importance. The availability of information at your fingertips could be the single major difference between two decisions and outcomes, and wrong or fallacious data could spell doom for a project/venture even before execution.
In the western world and developed countries, information gathering could be relative easy, since both individuals and the government have spent resources in making information available to the public through the internet. But for developing and third world countries where many are not interested in information sharing and where information from different sectors of the economy are inconsistent, getting the right data could sometimes be a pain.
But the Nigeria Bureau of Statistics, in association with African Development Bank and Prognoz, has made available what I would call Nigeria’s Largest Statistics Portal – Nigeria Stats. With a vision to become one of the foremost and modern knowledge-based national statistical offices in the world, the Nigeria Statistics Portal was designed to make raw data about Nigeria available to the public. This web based tool is useful for information-researchers, educationists, data-miners, and even the lay man on the street. It has information dated as far back as 1989 (or even earlier).
