Achievements

Bureau of Statistics was established in 1971 as Statistical Section of Planning and Development Department. The journey from inception to present is long exhibiting consistent efforts. With fewer resources available at that time the organization put in place limited staff headed by Assistant Director to produce data covering few sectors. Over time the organization continually stepped up its efforts and graduated from a section to Bureau of Statistics headed by Director bringing substantial improvement in the institutional capacity and performance. The post of Director was created in 1975 with some additional staff followed by the declaration of BOS as an attached department of Planning and Development Department (1987) and establishment of field offices at Abbottabad and Dera Ismail Khan in 1987. Currently BOS has 47 technical and 44 non-technical staff members working in various sections and its camp offices. With a view to enhance the data storage facility, update information with much ease and ensure timely provision of data to users the need for automation of data with application of the tools of Information Technology was essentially felt. The BOS in this backdrop started work on the development of Management Information System (MIS) back in 2009 and a plank of such initiative is the hosting of BOS website that has been offering a momentous facility to data users to get prompt access to information and statistical reports and make use of available data in their respective fields of work. With the web facility put in place a considerable progress has been made in disseminating the publications to relatively greater number of data users.
