Members from the media and users engaged in PR attended the seminar, ‘Statistics and the Media,’ on Monday 29 February.  The event, organised by NSO, was primarily intended to help users familiarise with the statistical output of the office.  In the first part of the seminar, the major releases issued by the NSO were reviewed and insight on their interpretation was provided. Reference was made to the GDP, inflation, unemployment, poverty, population and tourism among others. Light was also shed on the tools available on the NSO website, such as: metadata, StatDB and StataMaps. The seminar also served as a platform to discuss ways in which NSO’s products can be enhanced.
