This sector is responsible to compile and analyze statistical data on the macroeconomic indicators. The sector works with a close cooperation with the Central Statistics Organization (CSO) and collects raw data such as the gross domestic product (GDP), consumer price index (CPI), and other indicators from the National Statistics and Information Authority (NSIA) of Afghanistan. After the data collection, all the primary data are reviewed to assure its accuracy. Following the review and necessary calculations, the data is provided to the analysts to produce analytical reports. Such analytical reports are produced on monthly, quarterly, and annual basis, and make them accessible to all national and international users through economic publications of Da Afghanistan Bank.
To adopt, formulate and execute prudent and effective monetary policy, making short term and long term projections of some macroeconomic indicator are critical. Therefore, one of the most important tasks of this sector is to forecast some of the macro-economic variables.
