Dubai: Statistics offer valuable informational support to decision makers enabling them to take informed decisions, a senior official said.
Mattar Al Tayer, chairman of the board and executive director of the Roads and Transport Authority (RTA), made the statement as he received the chief executive of the Dubai Statistics Centre, Arif Obaid Al Muhairi.
Al Tayer commended the efforts made by the management of the Dubai Statistics Centre in compiling and providing all statistical information and databases in Dubai as well as updating them on a monthly basis and displaying them through a unified e-portal.
Al Muhairi praised the cooperation of RTA officials in supplying the Dubai Statistics Centre with a regular flow of data.
Al Tayer then attended to a briefing by Al Muhairi about the efforts made by the centre in supplying government entities with statistical information. "The centre aims at combining various statistical data and presenting them through a single portal regardless of their multiple sources," said Al Muhairi.
"All demographic, social, and economic statistics compiled from censuses and field surveys regularly conducted by Dubai Statistics Centre are carried out according to the highest international standards. Equally, all information and statistical indicators regularly supplied by other sources to the centre conform to the internationally accredited statistical standards," he confirmed.
