Fayemi unveils multiple indicator cluster survey to aid development plan
The Ekiti State Governor, Dr. Kayode Fayemi, has flagged off the conduct of the sixth edition of the Multiple Indicator Cluster Survey (MICS) in the state.
Fayemi, who spoke through the Commissioner for Budget and Economic Planning, Femi Ajayi, said the survey would support the ongoing efforts of the state government to prepare its development plan.
He also said that the survey would assist in tracking the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and the five-point agenda of the administration.
The governor said the survey would capture data on household living conditions, basic educational development, child and maternal health, reproductive health, among others.
In his remarks, the Acting Statistician General of the state, Mr. Olugbenga Oni, described the programme as laudable, adding that the priority given to collation of data by the present administration is also commendable.
The state official of the National Bureau of Statistics, Mr. Folounso Alesanmi, said that the survey would be carried out for two months in selected enumeration areas across the 16 local councils and there were 20 households in each of the enumeration areas.
