(1) The National Bureau of Statistics (NBS) wishes to inform its users of a delay in the Q1 (January–March 2024) Employment and Earnings publication, which was scheduled for release on June 28, 2024. This delay is due to technical difficulties in obtaining Private Sector data from the Seychelles Revenue Commission (SRC). The NBS expects to resume its regular dissemination of Employment and Earnings statistics once this issue has been resolved.

About the Bureau

In July 2010, the legal framework of the Bureau was recast and modernized and the National Statistics Bureau Act, 2005, was repealed to be replaced by the National Bureau of Statistics Act, 2010. The institution is now the National Bureau of Statistics (NBS) and is headed by a Chief Executive Officer.
