Congrats on this sig­nif­i­cant mile­stone

Jamaica Gleaner - - CELEBRATING 70 YEARS OF PROVIDING STATISTICS -

THE PLAN­NING In­sti­tute of Ja­maica (PIOJ) ap­plauds the Sta­tis­ti­cal In­sti­tute of Ja­maica (STATIN) on the oc­ca­sion of its 70th an­niver­sary. De­ci­sion-mak­ing must be in­formed by ac­cu­rate data, and in this re­gard, STATIN has gained an en­vi­able rep­u­ta­tion, na­tion­ally, re­gion­ally and in­ter­na­tion­ally, for be­ing one of the most re­li­able and credible pub­lic-sec­tor in­sti­tu­tions.

Pol­icy-based anal­y­sis un­der­taken by the PIOJ is de­pen­dent on the out­put of STATIN, par­tic­u­larly its re­ports on the na­tional in­come and prod­uct, trade, con­sumer prices, labour mar­ket per­for­mance as well as de­mo­graphic trends. The data pro­vided by STATIN is also es­sen­tial for mon­i­tor­ing Ja­maica’s progress to­wards the achieve­ment of its na­tional and in­ter­na­tional de­vel­op­ment goals and tar­gets.

The PIOJ con­grat­u­lates its sis­ter agency, STATIN, on achiev­ing this sig­nif­i­cant mile­stone and looks for­ward to our con­tin­ued col­lab­o­ra­tion as we strive to make ‘Ja­maica, the place of choice to live, work, raise fam­i­lies and do busi­ness’.
