DRN 2002 Vol. XX No.2: Statistics Work: Of Grains, Fish and Numbers

Good policymaking is not totally dependent on good policymakers. A large part of the process depends on the quality of data and information made accessible to these noble public servants. It is also important to note that not only the policymakers and intellectual group require timely data. Farmers and fisherfolks, in particular, need information as well if they are to make correct decisions and provide the right produce at the right time for the general populace. Yet, full support in terms of increased budgets to organizations providing such statistics is somehow "missing." Not all of the data demanded and needed by endusers could be generated due to lack of needed resources. It is perhaps incumbent for the users of and stakeholders to these organizations' outputs to advocate for increased government and private sector support to them.
