Indian state's Directorate of Economics and Statistics uses SAS® to plan for socioeconomic development
Directorate of Economics and Statistics (DES) is the nodal statistical body of the Government of Maharashtra, India. It collects official statistics, conducts surveys and provides statistical guidance to various government departments driving policy decisions for the state's socioeconomic development.
In addition, SAS disseminates DES data through an integrated environment involving Web-based scheduled and ad hoc reporting. DES enjoys the multilingual capabilities of SAS to satisfy regional language needs. According to Bhosale, this is effective when reporting information both within the department and to external constituents like government agencies, businesses and even the media and general public.
