This note reviews those discussions and resolutions of the Economic Commission for Africa at its second and third sessions that are relevant to the deliberations of the second Conference of African Statisticians. The commission considered that exchange of information and experience among African statisticians, with the Secretariat acting as a clearing house, was essential and expressed the view that ad hoc groups of experts should be convened to study such topics as government accounts and the utilization of census data.
