Federal Minister for Planning Development & Special Initiatives Asad Umar chaired meeting on the initiatives taken by PBS regarding digital transformation and evidence based policy making here on Tuesday. PBS officials briefed the Minister that PBS had actively perused the aim of shifting from manual data collection to electronic data collection and has achieved in-house capacity to develop Android Based data collection software, Mobile Aaps and Dash Boards.

It was further informed that PBS has developed a Decision Support System for Inflation (DSSI) which provides information about whole sale prices, retail prices, import/export and production in one window. DSSI would enable the policy makers to take evidence based policy decision and address the causes of inflation in the country. This system will be useful for National Price Monitoring Committee (NPMC), Provincial Governments, District Administration and Price Committees.

The Minister Asad Umar appreciated the efforts under taken by PBS and said that reliable and timely data helps the policy makers to take informed decisions. He said that PBS has a vast repository of Census Data at Block level and easy and wide access to the data will be beneficial to all stakeholders. This system will help policy makers in making effective decision policy.
