The African Statistics Day (ASD) was adopted in May 1990 at the UNECA conference of African Ministers responsible for Planning and Economic Development. It is commemorated on 18 November to raise public awareness about the important role that statistics play in all aspects of social and economic life.

Each year, celebration of the African Statistics Day revolves around raising awareness amongst decision-makers, development partners, data producers and users, academia, researchers, and the public on the importance of statistics on a specific theme. The theme for 2022 is “Strengthening data system by modernizing the production and use of agricultural statistics with a view of informing policies to improve resilience in agriculture, nutrition, and food security on the African Continent.”
