Quarterly Reports on the Economic Indicators on Facebook
Capitol Hill, Saipan – The CNMI Department of Commerce’s Central Statistics Division (CSD) is
releasing snapshot versions of its quarterly reports on the Economic Indicators using one of the top
social networks today; FACEBOOK.
Timeline can be accessed at:
The Economic Indicators Report displays useful statistics of the social and economic conditions of
the Commonwealth of the Northern Mariana Islands.
You can now access snapshots for the 2012 and 2013 quarters respectively. Included in the
snapshots are graphs and charts for banking, remittance, auto sales, visitors arrival, average hotel
daily rates, average hotel occupancy rates, business gross revenue, imports, residential phone lines
by island, commercial and residential phone line totals, number of building permits issued, and
values of building permits issued.
“This facebook page complements the existing Commerce Statistics Website
(http://commerce.gov.mp/divisions/central-statistics/) by providing readily available data without
holding back for other delayed data to be reported simultaneously for each quarter,” Acting
Director of Statistics, Alfonis M. Sound, stated. “Once all data are available for the reporting quarter,
the full report will be published on the main Commerce site.”
