To contribute to national prosperity through coordinating and providing quality, accurate and timely statistics and information to guide policy and planning for growth and development of Papua New Guinea
The National Statistical Office (NSO) of Papua New Guinea was established in 1981 by the Statistical Service Act (Chapter 386) and became the central agency in Papua New Guinea for providing statistical information to meet the needs of the Government for the formulation of policy and planning. Under Section 106 of the 1995 Reformed Organic Law on Provincial and Local Level Government, the National Statistical Office of Papua New Guinea was also given the mandate to assist in creating statistical databases at the Provincial and Local Government levels for policy formulation and planning at these levels.
