The National Institute of Statistics (NIS) is a significant agency within Cambodia’s Ministry of Planning, committed to the methodical gathering, examination, and distribution of authoritative statistical data, which plays a major role in the country’s socio-economic development. The NIS’s internet portal CAMSTAT serves as a crucial platform for accessing the nation’s data, enabling informed decision-making, and promoting sustainable development.

CAMSTAT serves as a comprehensive data reporting platform, facilitating the dissemination of national development indicators to monitor and evaluate the National Strategic Development Plan, Cambodian Sustainable Development Goal, and other initiatives. Built on the .Stat dissemination platform, CAMSTAT is undergoing redevelopment to provide an end-to-end statistical solution, covering the entire statistical processing life cycle from data collection to dissemination. The implementation of CAMSTAT aims to enhance statistical cooperation within the National Statistical System and international monitoring agencies. By improving coordination and harmonization, it ensures the production and dissemination of timely, high-quality data, supporting the government in informed policy-making decisions.

At the core of the NIS’s mandate is the meticulous curation of data on diverse facets of Cambodian society and economy. The website serves as a reservoir of information, housing an array of reports, statistical tables, databases, and metadata spanning critical sectors such as population, agriculture, health, education, poverty, and national accounts.

One notable report, the “Cambodia Agriculture Survey 2020,” stands testament to the NIS’s commitment to providing actionable insights. This report delves into the intricacies of crop cultivation, livestock and poultry management, as well as aquaculture and capture fishing operations. The data presented becomes a valuable resource for policymakers, researchers, and stakeholders, facilitating evidence-based strategies for sustainable agricultural practices.

The “Cambodia Demographic and Health Survey 2021-22” is another cornerstone publication, offering a panoramic view of the nation’s demographic and health landscape. Covering vital indicators such as fertility, mortality, family planning, maternal and child health, nutrition, HIV/AIDS, and gender issues, this survey equips stakeholders with the knowledge needed to address public health challenges and implement targeted interventions.

For a holistic understanding of Cambodia’s socio-economic dynamics, the “Statistical Year Book 2021” is a go-to resource. Providing a comprehensive overview of key indicators across sectors like population, labor, education, health, agriculture, industry, trade, tourism, transport, communication, and the environment, this publication serves as a compass for policymakers navigating the complexities of national development.

The NIS’s commitment to transparency is reflected not only in its wealth of data but also in the provision of information about its vision, mission, structure, and activities. The website fosters collaboration by offering links to other pertinent national and international statistical agencies and organizations.

In essence, the NIS’s online portal is more than a repository of numbers; it is a catalyst for progress. By putting accurate and timely information at the fingertips of decision-makers, researchers, and the public, the NIS empowers Cambodia to chart a course towards sustainable development and prosperity. As the nation continues to evolve, the NIS remains steadfast in its mission, shaping a data-driven future for Cambodia.
