Our interest in teamwork and cooperation to achieve our goals and ambitions stems from our conviction that the development of the Abu Dhabi statistical system is not the responsibility of a single government entity; it is a collective national responsibility involving everyone, each according to its role. In order to strengthen this approach and foster a teamwork culture, the idea to launch the Charter was born. The Charter is a legal document, in which SCAD clearly determines the nature of its available statistical data and Professional Code of the Ethics as a following:
CHARTER OF COOPERATION
Through this charter, SCAD clearly determines the nature of statistical data and all service delivery channels and its category of providers and users. SCAD also vows to follow the best international statistical methodologies and make every possible effort to harness the human and technical resources available to meet the requirements of customers without discrimination.
PROFESSIONAL CODE OF THE ETHICS
In a further effort towards developing the statistical practice in Emirate of Abu Dhabi and enhance public confidence in the emirate’s statistical system, SCAD has endorsed the recently issued “Charter of Professional Code of the Ethics”. The Signing of the Charter has been revised in the light of the Declaration on professional Ethics developed and adopted by International Statistical Institute (ISI( since 1985 to lay solid and agreed foundation in the statistical work, and to clarify the commitments towards the community, user and respondent.
The charter aims to promote the moral value of staff working in SCAD and document the ethical principles of statistical work in Abu Dhabi by providing a guide line of statistician’s best practice.
