The context of this project is related to the fact that INSTAT is entering into an important and delicate phase of its institutional duties, with direct consequences on the credibility and EU compliance of the Albanian National Statistical system. The planned organization of the population and housing census in 2011, the agriculture census and the economic non-agriculture enterprises census, are going to be very important activities, having direct impact not only on INSTAT itself, but on the developing national statistical system and on the country as a whole. For the country as a whole, implementing a census allows the country to provide to its government and to international organizations a correct picture of itself, including a wealth of quality data for evidence based decision-making and for international comparison.
