The mission of Statistics South Africa (Stats SA) is to lead and partner in statistical production systems for evidence-based decisions.

Stats SA's key goals involve: broadening the role and reach of official statistics – information should enable citizens, the government and businesses to understand and change society, and the important role that numbers play in this context emphasises the importance of relevance and use of official statistics; growth through coordination – the Organisation is moving away from producing statistical series as isolated products to an approach of a production system focusing on integration and analysis that cuts across series, products and organisations; enhanced quality – setting standards for statistical products, providing statistical advice and designating statistics as official of all organs of state within a statistics system are important deliverables for the strategy, and will contribute to improving and assessing the quality of statistical information; sustained capacity – developing and sustaining skills and infrastructure within Stats SA and amongst organs of state that produce statistics, within a systems framework; and doing more with less – being innovative, the use of technology, and a motivated and productive workforce are key enablers to deliver the strategy in an efficient and effective way.
