Message From Director
Welcome to the official website and data portal of the National Statistics Bureau (NSB), the main statistical agency and custodian of official statistics in Bhutan! You will agree with me that the need for accurate, timely and reliable statistics on various facets of our national life has been on the increase in recent times. In responding to this growing demand, NSB is making available online an expansive collection of data compiled over the years. This means that data that previously existed only in print, requiring laborious efforts, time and resources to obtain it, analyze them will now be accessible at your fingertips!  We have made every effort to provide as much data as currently available, and we’ll continue to update the portal over time. Nevertheless, considering that resources are limited, NSB strategy is to ensure that data production is demand-driven, which means that we focus our limited resources on data that are in greatest demand by our user community for policy and decision-making. With this focus, the improved website also represents a major tool in the achievement of our vision  - “towards supporting evidence-based decision making in the country”.  Since the ultimate purpose of data is to enable us assess the past, understand the present as well as anticipate and prepare for the future, it is therefore our expectation that data obtained from NSB website will inform public policy, promote accountability and good governance while facilitating the implementation of development interventions across Bhutan. Although the website and data portal will appeal to a broad cross-section of the public, it would be of immeasurable benefit particularly to researchers, students, and policymakers who are interested in making sense of trends in major socio-economic indicators in Bhutan, and to assess the progress we are making particularly towards Gross National Happiness.  I wish to express our sincere gratitude to our partners, stakeholders and respondents in the public and private sectors who have supported NSB in data production activities over the years. We look forward to more exciting collaboration to increase the quantity and quality of our data releases in future. I would also like, in a most special way, to appreciate the dedication and commitment of the management and staff of NSB at the HQ and across the 20 Dzongkhags. The NSB data portal is a direct outcome of their devotion. It is my sincere hope that the contents of these pages will satisfactorily meet the needs of all categories of data users, be it policymakers, researchers, analysts, students and members of the public.
