Welcome to The Gambia Bureau of Statistics (GBoS) website. The Bureau established under the Statistics Act of 2005 is a semi-autonomous statistics agency under the Ministry of Finance and Economic Affairs (MoFEA). It is the body entrusted to provide official statistics and is responsible for the collection, compilation, analysis and dissemination of official statistical data. The Bureau is as well responsible for monitoring and coordinating the National Statistical System and carrying out central functions required for all other statistical services.
Survey and Census micro- data are invaluable resources for statisticians, researchers and policy analysts. Our strategy is to widely publicize and disseminate statistical information to different users in a timely manner. The website therefore is the most important tool in our dissemination strategy that facilitates the dissemination of these official statistics.
The website will assist to strengthen the cohesiveness and effectiveness of the Bureau's dissemination of official statistics. Through the site, we hope to build a warm relationship of mutual respect and trust with our data users and providers who are really our partners in the National Statistical System. In the quest of providing our users with up-to-date information, we hope to provide more timely, accurate and quality statistics.
I hope that you will find the information on this site useful. If you have any comments and/or wish to discuss any aspects of our work, please do not hesitate to contact us.
Mr. Nyakassi MB Sanyang
