The Eastern Africa Statistical Training Centre (EASTC) as a professional institution, right from its conceptualization, had its ‘regional roots’ way back in the year 1961.
Ofisi ya Taifa ya Takwimu (NBS) inawatangazia watanzania wenye sifa kuomba kazi ya muda ya udadisi au ukusanyaji wa takwimu nafasi 450 kwa ajili ya Utafiti wa Mapato na Matumizi ya Kaya Binafsi wa mwaka 2017/18 (Household Budget Survey) utakaofanyika katika mikoa yote ya Tanzania Bara. Utafiti huu unahitaji mwombaji atoke kwenye eneo ambalo utafiti unafanyika na awe tayari kufanya kazi kwa kipindi chote cha miezi 12.
Mkuu wa Chuo cha Takwimu Mashariki mwa Afrika kilichopo Changanyikeni Dar es salaam anapenda kuwatangazia kuwa kutakuwa na mafunzo ya kutumia TABLETS na CAPI Awamu ya tatu(3) katika ukusanyaji Takwimu. Mafunzo yataanza rasmi tarehe 07/08/2017 na yatadumu kwa muda wa siku tatu (3) kwa kila “intake”. Gharama za mafunzo ni Tsh. 50,000/=
The Eastern Africa Statistical Training Centre, in collaboration with the National Bureau of Statistics (NBS), organized training sessions for EASTC students as young statisticians at EASTC premises, which began on the 14th of September, 2016. The main purpose of the training sessions is to orient the trainees for the work of data collection. The data collection exercise is part and parcel of a survey, which will be carried out on behalf of the Rural Electrification Agency (REA).
EASTC is guided by Fundamental Principles of Official Statistics in training. Ten Fundamental Principles of Official Statistics according to UNSD are:
The production of statistics on our continent faces recurrent problems. In 2006, African Ministers of Economy and Finance, gathered in Yaoundé, Cameroon, recommended that the African Union consider lasting solutions to address these problems.
During the 1960s, African countries, through the Organization of African Unity (OAU), initiated a process of continental integration intended to ultimately foster and accelerate economic and social development as well as political stability.
The Global Strategy to improve agricultural and rural statistics (GSARS) is the largest global effort ever put forth to enhance and ensure the sustainability of agricultural and rural statistics in developing countries.
