The Ministry of Statistics and Programme Implementation came into existence as an independent Ministry on 15.10.1999 after the merger of the Department of Statistics and the Department of Programme Implementation. The Ministry of Statistics and Programme Implementation attaches considerable importance to coverage and quality aspects of statistics released in the country. The statistics released are based on administrative sources, surveys and censuses conducted by the Centre and State Governments and non-official sources and studies. The surveys conducted by the Ministry are based on scientific sampling methods and are supervised by the Governing Council, now Steering Committee. Data is collected through dedicated field staff (i.e. SSS incumbents), who have known the concepts and definitions of items and the scope of the survey. In line with the emphasis on quality of statistics released by the Ministry, the methodological issues concerning the compilation of national accounts are overseen by the Advisory Committee on National Accounts, the industrial statistics by the Standing Committee on Industrial Statistics and the price indices by the Technical Advisory Committee on price indices. The Ministry compiles datasets based on current data and after applying standard statistical techniques and extensive scrutiny and supervision.
