13 Challenges Limited funds
Difficulty in keeping staff from working outside NIS Different staff members managing the data processing operation based on the project Different software used for processing data based on the project The capacity of staff who have IT skills is limited and some staff are working in IT with no IT skills

14 Conclusion Three types of censuses and various surveys have been conducted based on the statistics law such as a Population Census, Economic Census and Agriculture Census; surveys include the CIPS, CDHS, Socio-Economic Survey, etc. However, NIS still faces some problems such as the low skills of staff in IT, low salary for keeping staff to work longer, and donors reducing support for projects (which is required because the government provides limited funding support)
