World Bank helps Nigeria to improve data literacy and usage

The Nigerian Bureau of Statistics (NBS) has received support from the World Bank and Code for Africa (CfA) to increase its use of data among a diverse group of data users. The cooperation focuses on boosting open data publication, creating a user-friendly website to make data accessible and building data use capacity for various stakeholder groups such as government and academia.

Thanks to this cooperation, a new unit was instituted within the NBS consisting of seven members who ensure data is published in the most usable format.
