                                            Introduction

    The Uganda Bureau of Statistics (UBOS) is a semi-
     autonomous body established by an Act of Parliament
     (1998) to promote the production, analysis and
     dissemination of official statistics.

    It is also responsible for the coordination, supervision and
     monitoring of the National Statistical System (NSS).

    UBOS has been implementing the Plan for National
     Statistical Development (PNSD)/NSDS since 2006.

    So far 16 MDAs are on board and have developed Sector
     Strategic Plans for Statistics (SSPSs) that form building
     blocks for the PNSD.
