Ashwell Jenneker, Deputy Director-General: Marketing, Communication and Publishing at Statistics South Africa will present this seminar.

How do the data produced by Stats SA (South Africa’s National Statistical Office) relate to real world policy and evidence based evaluations? This presentation will highlight the key links and important numbers shaping South Africa’s economic and social landscape, discuss the perils of avoiding empirical evidence, and explore the foundations that support the statistics that Stats SA produces.
