SNBS Annual Report 2023

As the Somalia National Bureau of Statistics presents the 2023 Annual Report, deep gratitude is extended to the dedicated individuals whose exceptional efforts have shaped this comprehensive document.

In 2023, SNBS played a pivotal role in contributing to evidence-based decision-making, offering data into crucial indicators such as GDP, CPI, trade statistics, Governance Statistics, the first Somali Voluntary National Report (VNR) in 2022, Gender Statistics and Poverty Reports, the Household Budget Survey, as well as the Launch of the Housing and Population Census in May 2023 and the Multiple Indicator Cluster Survey.

Governance Statistics Report 2023

Governance statistics play a crucial role in fostering inclusive, transparent, and accountable connections between the government and its citizens in Somalia. Governance issues are embedded in the Somalia National Development Plan (NDP-9) and in the measurement of progress towards achieving the set targets of national development priorities. Specifically, under Pillar One Inclusive and Accountable Politics and Pillar two Security and Rule of Law. In fact, fifty percent of the Pillars data within the NDP-9 (two out four pillars) derive from Governance Statistics.

Further, international, and regional development frameworks should also be monitored during the period of the NDP-9, specifically SDG 16 Peace, Justice and Strong Institutions and the World Banks and AfDB’s more contextual Country Policy Institutional Assessment (CPIA), which Somalia has been a part of since 2019. Monitoring and reporting on these national, regional, and international Governance Statistics frameworks are essential for achieving the 2030 Sustainable Development Agenda.

Somalia has in place the Ninth National Development Plan (NDP-9), which envisages a five year (2020-2024) pathway towards economic emancipation and reduction of poverty in the country, hence serves as an Interim Poverty Reduction Strategy Paper (IPRSP) within the framework of the Highly Indebted Poor Country (HIPC) initiative. Satisfactory implementation of the poverty reduction strategy will trigger the completion point of debt relief for Somalia.

Quality data and statistics are key for monitoring and evaluating the NDP-9, sectoral plans, the attainment of Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and measure the progress towards the completion point of debt relief.

This Poverty Analysis Report relies on the SIHBS—2022 data, whose report the SNBS published and disseminated on February 20, 2023, to analyze and measure current poverty levels and inequalities within Somalia by presenting valuable insights into the dimensions and distribution of poverty across regions and demographic groups.


Assessment and Mapping of the Migration Data Production Capacities of the Government of Somalia

This report is based on an assessment and mapping exercise, which was informed primarily through key informant interviews conducted during and after a mission to Mogadishu, Somalia in March of 2022. The assessment employed the Toolkit to assess national migration data capacity, an assessment questionnaire which was developed by the United Nations Statistics Division in 2018 to assess national capacity of producing reliable, timely, and comparable statistics on international migration and to identify areas where capacity building is needed. This report includes key recommendations and priority action areas, including the establishment of a migration data technical working group and the production of a thematic report on migration using existing survey data.
