Collector name Central Statistics Office, Statistics Botswana Statistics Botswana is a parastatal organization charged with responsibilities of collecting and disseminating all official statistics in Botswana. The autonomy of the organisation was realised under the Statistics Act of 2009, repealing the archaic 1967 Act, under which Central Statistics Office was formed.
