The Central Bureau of Statistics is the central agency for the
collection, consolidation, processing, analysis, publication and
dissemination of statistics in Nepal. One of its core tasks is to
research and publish censuses of Nepal, the most prominent one being
the overall population census and Demographics of Nepal.
The Central Bureau of Statistics was established in 1959 under the
National Planning Commission of Nepal, which is headed by the Prime
Minister of Nepal. Before 2015, different Nepalese governmental
organisations gathered statistical information on their own. This led
to inconsistencies in statistical information, for which the Bureau
called for improvement of the processes, which, however, were not
implemented as of 2017.
