Minister of State for Budget and National Planning, Prince Clem Agba said this at a sensitisation programme on the Nigerian Labour Force Survey (NLFS) and the Nigerian Living Standards Survey (NLSS) organised by the National Bureau of Statistics (NBS) in Abuja.
“For example in Ghana, Ethiopia and Rwanda, inflation was reported at 40. 4 per cent, 31.7 per cent and 31 per cent, respectively in October 2022.
“This one is more encompassing but covers not only the definition but also includes sampling procedure, data collection and methodology.
“The major change to this round of the NLSS is the use of newly carved out digital enumeration area maps from the National Population Commission, for the selection of clusters and subsequent household listing.
” Also, the addition of new questions and modules on Remittances, Migration and Absentee Household members, Migration Aspiration, Social Cohesion, Petrol Subsidy, and Subjective well-being to the NLSS survey questionnaire.”
Additionally, he said new questions on persons employed but not at work, long-term unemployment, job satisfaction, discouraged job seekers, and information on decent work, were all included in the revised instrument.
He called on participants, most especially representatives from the state ministries of local government and chieftaincy affairs, to kindly support the NBS in sensitising their people about the conduct of these surveys.
“The importance and usage of data will only resonate if there is faith in the robustness of the data collected and that is essentially in the robustness, integrity and capability of the agency collecting the data.”
