Statistics Dissemination Technologies Statistical data were well received and used by the line Ministries, International Agencies, NGOs, planning offices in the provinces and districts, the universities, individual and institutional scholars and researchers, teachers and students, and other data users. The findings of the previous statistical data were successfully disseminated both through electronic products, printed reports and by way of dissemination seminars and workshops at the national and provincial levels. DUSC has also been servicing data users on an on-going basis.
Dissemination by print media The various statistical data analysis reports have been printed and published which containing important indicators as derived from the various analysis with suitable and attractive illustrations. Wall maps/charts and thematic atlases also be produced. Tables at National and Provisional levels were published. The Dissemination by print media may be useful for local planning and for those who may not have access to computer facilities and consequently may not be able to avail of the statistical electronic products.
Electronic Dissemination products The fast-growing uses of computer and its networking call for wider and deeper electronic dissemination products with user-friendly interface, and efficient retrieval and manipulation functionality. The proposed electronic dissemination is classified into two main categories 1. Off-line electronic dissemination products and 2 On-line electronic dissemination products
Electronic Dissemination………… 1. Off-line electronic dissemination products – Off-line electronic dissemination products are mainly in the form of CD- ROM. – These include: a Table Retrieval System, a Community Profile System, a population database built on micro data, a thematic mapping application and Cam Info updates.

The Key Challenges Changed demands for statistics in monitoring the progress of NSDP and in consideration that the ASEAN Framework will have a larger impact on the NSS in the near future Insufficient finance from Government of Cambodia and the reduced financial support from development partners in the future. Short of financial obligation in legal framework Lack of skilled staff and lack of effective coordination within the NSS and stakeholders Lack of commitment to and ownership of the Statistical Master Plan Statistical system need further strengthening for data collection, analysis, dissemination, management, and cooperation
