  • implements statistical programs for territorial government purposes and provides statistical advice and assistance to departments, regional offices and central agencies;
  • coordinates statistical activities within the government to minimize the duplication of statistical effort and to help ensure that the statistics used by the government are current, consistent and accurate;
  • provides for the continuing and effective representation of territorial statistical interests within the national statistical system.
