Instituto Nacional de Estatística (Guinea-Bissau)
The Instituto Nacional de Estatística ( INE ) is the statistical institute of the Republic of Guinea-Bissau . Among other things, it is responsible for conducting the census . It resides on Avenida Amílcar Cabral in the capital Bissau and is affiliated with the Ministry of Economic Affairs, the Ministério de Economia, Plano e Integração Regional .
The INE came into being after the country gained independence from Portugal in 1973. Law No. 2/91 of 1991 was the first to comprehensively regulate the statutes and responsibilities of the INE from a legal perspective. However, the serious underfunding of the INE only enables the salaries of all INE employees to be paid; there is no significant fixed budget for ongoing work.
With financial and technical support from the Portuguese INE , a modernized statistical service was launched in 1991 to take account of the increasing changes in the country. The following crises in the country, especially the civil war after the conflict of June 7, 1998 , prevented these plans for the time being.
The last comprehensive census was carried out by the INE in 2009; the current publication of the INE in Guinea-Bissau (as of June 2014) is a “situation analysis of the sexual minorities with regard to the HI virus ”, which was published in 2013.
