to

Nigeria

by

a

chance

meeting

of

the

Director
-

National Bureau of Statistics

Training in Ghana



Early

in

2006

the

meeting

between

the

Director

General

of

Nigeria

NBS

with

Mr
.

Olivier

led

to

the

invitation

of

participants

from

Nigeria

to

attend

the

training

on

Microdata

Management

Toolkit

in

Ghana

sponsored

by

World

Bank
.



The

training

was

an

introduction

to

the

development

of

the

application

and

it

lasted

for

only

two

days
.

National Bureau of Statistics

Pilot Application



A

Pilot

Application

was

developed

in

NBS,

shared

with

Mr
.

Olivier

Dupriez

and

published

on

the

web
.



Two

large

NBS

surveys,

the

Nigerian

Living

Standard

Survey

(NLSS)

and

the

Core

Welfare

Indicator

Questionnaire

Survey

(CWIQ)

were

used

for

the

pilot
.



The

pilot

was

developed

with

an

enhancement

which

includes

mapping

which

was

not

only

produced

in

CD

but

published

on

NBS

website
.

National Bureau of Statistics

Workshop by


Mr. Geoffery Greenwell



Recognizing

NBS

interest

in

adopting

the

Application,

another

workshop

was

held

in

July

2007

in

Nigeria

to

train

more

NBS

staff

so

that

results

of

more

of

its

survey

can

be

archived

and

published
.



More

than

20

people

were

trained

by

Mr
.

Geoffery’s

team

(Geoffery,

Robert

Akol

of

Uganda

and

Fafunmi

Elisha

of

Nigeria)
.



At

the

training

3

other

NBS

surveys

were

worked

on

(GHS,

APRM

and

MICS)

which

will

soon

be

published

on

NBS

website

Challenges from MDAs




Of the 15 Agencies selected only 4 reported to have
conducted surveys or censuses (Ministries of Health,
Education, Agric and National Population Commission)



So far, only NBS and Population Commission have micro
level data for archiving



Observation shows that micro level data with metadata on
survey and census are not managed, often scattered, lost or
not documented by the MDAs.



Generally evidence shown that the service of Consultants
were used for the surveys and raw data were kept by the
consultants with only report submitted to the MDAs.



So, agencies do not have access or ownership to the micro
and metadata on surveys and censuses


National Bureau of Statistics

The NBS Data
Dissemination Policy




NBS is committed to disseminating to the public all data in its
domain.



NBS also wants to make available to users the metadata relevant to
all its data.



NBS wants all its data to be widely disseminated, therefore has
adopted the use of web technology to disseminate all its statistical
products in addition to existing methods.



For openness and transparency micro level data from surveys and
censuses are as also documented, archived and disseminated on
NBS website.



NBS maintains a policy of distributing microdata over the net using
the facility produced by the Toolkit to meet the increasing demand by
researchers and students for household level data

National Bureau of Statistics

Policy and Attitude


NBS is committed to encourage the use of micro
-
data and
broaden access to the various survey and census data
-
sets by
the data
-
user community.




NBS aims to maximize the use of data while protecting the
confidentiality of the respondents.



Towards data dissemination on the web, NBS normally requests
the users of its data to abide by the following rules:



Ask for permission from NBS before using our data


Acknowledge NBS in any report produced as a result of using its
data




For now NBS do not charge any fees for any data published on
its web.

National Bureau of Statistics

Data Anonymity



Security and confidentiality of the respondent are
preserved by using codes which are only open to NBS.



Frames for data collection are not released to users



Data are only released on household level and not at
individual level.



In future efforts will be made to further anonymized all
data sent out.

Conclusion



Because of the high demand for Micro level data from
Universities, Research Institutions and Organised
Private Institution as well as private individuals, it has
become a challenge to NBS to collaborate with other
MDAs on the issue of archiving survey and census
results.



NBS will take it as a challenge to work more with MDAs
on archiving surveys and censuses so that agencies can
own their data rather than the practice now when
consultants produce reports for them but keep the data.
