cooperation between QSA and a number of the State's entities with regard to implementing some specialized surveys.
He said that QSA works within a plan to disseminate Census' results to all entities, enable them to effectively use data and information that is produced, benefit practically from those results when setting future directions, and form plans in line with the National Development Strategy 2011 - 2016.
He added that the State's officials in particular can take advantage of statistics such as using statistical figures and information in planning the roads according to population growth rates, developing visions and plans for roads help smooth traffic flow by identifying the routes used by the staff from home to workplace, and then designing roads proportional to the number of vehicles driven by them.
The explanation addressed in general the methods of using Census data in developing plans for some entities in the State like ASHGHAL, by knowing where the elderly live in the State, and thus establishing cafes for them, which is scheduled to be done during the next phase by ASHGHAL. Besides it could be useful for accurately determining the areas in which there is a need for setting up schools, through knowing population age ranges in each zone, and thus easily determining the education level for those schools based on accurate information and data.
He discussed too QSA role in the learning process. In addition to determining the abovementioned, QSA data shows students characteristics, both Qatari and non Qatari, which enables providing educational services based on statistical information and data.
He also mentioned that QSA is ready to provide the statistical data needed by the public, researchers or companies via QALM:
www.qix.gov.qa, or directly contacting QSA officials for offering any statistics.
He finally clarified that by means of Census data municipalities can set plans for the implementation of any projects related to the 2022 World Cup, and determine where to establish metro stations. Working on this is scheduled to begin the year after the next one.
