6 Mission of official statistics to R&D and education The mission of the NSS is to monitor the information needs of those domains of research that use statistical data as their basis raw material for production of statistical findings, e.g. general economic research institutes and branch oriented economic institutes, institutes of social sciences, ecological research as well as R&D centers supporting the enterprises. The results of this monitoring should be implemented into practice in the process of the programming of surveys and in the data dissemination policy of the NSS (contents and scope of statistical databases, publishing policy, access to metadata).The mission of the NSS is to monitor the information needs of those domains of research that use statistical data as their basis raw material for production of statistical findings, e.g. general economic research institutes and branch oriented economic institutes, institutes of social sciences, ecological research as well as R&D centers supporting the enterprises.

Long terms goals of supporting the development of the information society in Belarus will be achieved by the contributing of official statisticians to the education, especially on secondary and university levels. It seems that nowadays systematic education of teachers on all levels of education should be given the priority. The knowledge of global and national statistical systems, on specificities of statistical methodology, on deontological principles of statistics, etc., is not common enough, even among those, who teach mathematical statistics at the universities and high schools.Long terms goals of supporting the development of the information society in Belarus will be achieved by the contributing of official statisticians to the education, especially on secondary and university levels.
