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. Further, the launch of the Second National Strategy for the Development of Statistics (NSDS2). All of these statistical achievements enriched the policymaking landscape in Somalia.
