At a meeting on measures to improve national statistics chaired by the head of state on June 1 this year, the issue of human resources was raised, and instructions were given to train and improve the skills of all specialists of the statistical system.
On the basis of a specific plan established by Goskomstat, a systematic training program for the staff of the central office of the committee and regional statistical offices was developed and approved.
Based on this schedule, online seminars were organized in June-July this year to improve the qualifications of the system's employees and further enhance their knowledge and capabilities in this area.
The next video conference, organized on November 20, 2020 by the Department of Social and Sustainable Development Statistics, was a logical continuation of the capacity building of the system.
At the event, Goskomstat specialists studied the knowledge and potential of employees of territorial statistical offices on monitoring the business environment, terms of social statistics, the formation of summary analytical information on statistics of the social sphere and sustainable development, as well as sampling methods.
