To efficiently serve its member states in different areas of intervention, the United Nations Economic Commission for Africa (UNECA) has established, since its inception, a number of subsidiary bodies as part of its intergovernmental machinery. In the area of statistics and statistical development, the status of the subsidiary body has changed through time reflecting the profile of statistics as a thematic area within the UNECA.
