Informed Governance: UAE's Department of Statistics Transformation

In this implementation story, our collaboration with the Department of Statistics in the UAE aimed to empower decision-makers with a data-driven approach for policy formulation. The project’s dashboard provided a comprehensive demographic profile of the country’s population, including insights into religious composition, employment statistics by gender and age group, and key performance indicators (KPIs) such as fine collection, accident rates, literacy rates, and infant mortality rates.
