A re­vised Law of Sta­tis­tics

The Star Early Edition - - BUSINESS REPORT -

A NEW REG­U­LA­TION on the im­ple­men­ta­tion of the re­vised Law of Sta­tis­tics was is­sued to im­prove the au­then­tic­ity and re­li­a­bil­ity of of­fi­cial data. A state­ment jointly is­sued by the Leg­isla­tive Af­fairs Of­fice of the State Coun­cil of China and the National Bu­reau of Sta­tis­tics ex­plained that a pre­vi­ous by-law on sta­tis­tics law im­ple­men­ta­tion, is­sued in 1987 in ac­cor­dance with a 1983 law, had some in­con­sis­ten­cies with the lat­est re­vised Law of Sta­tis­tics, which took ef­fect in 2010. The new reg­u­la­tion, is­sued last month and made pub­lic on Mon­day, will be­come ef­fec­tive in Au­gust. The state­ment noted that the new reg­u­la­tion is in­tended to im­prove au­then­tic­ity and re­li­a­bil­ity of of­fi­cial data so as to bet­ter serve the coun­try’s de­ci­sion mak­ing, macro con­trol and eco­nomic and so­cial de­vel­op­ment. The new reg­u­la­tion stip­u­lated mea­sures to im­prove the ef­fi­ciency and qual­ity of sta­tis­ti­cal work and to re­duce the bur­den for the ob­jects in sta­tis­ti­cal sur­veys. – Xin­hua
