This November 18 is African Statistics Day, an opportunity to sensitize decision-makers and all citizens to the importance of statistics in all aspects of life, social but also economic. In the Democratic Republic of the Congo, statistics are often not available in many areas. In question: the lack of resources of the National Institute of Statistics. The last national directory dates from 2017. Its production was financed by the African Development Bank (ADB). In Lubumbashi, the second largest city in the country, this public institution focuses on the publication of the consumer price index.
