The National Bureau of Statistics (NBS) is the National Statistical Office of Tanzania. NBS, as a Government agency, was established from the former Central Bureau of Statistics to provide efficient services, giving increased value for money for the benefit of the Government and the public in general. NBS carries out its activities in a businesslike manner, using commercial financial management and business-planning techniques and is customer focused. It conducts Censuses and Surveys which yield a wide range of economic, social and demographic statistics.
