The origins of the Southern Sudan Centre for Census Statistics and Evaluation (SSCCSE) date back to 1995 when it served as a Database and Monitoring Unit under the then Sudan Relief and Rehabilitation Association (SRRA).
In 2005, following the signing of the Comprehensive Peace Agreement (CPA) and the promulgation of the Southern Sudan Interim Constitution, the Centre was founded and has since assumed the roles specified in the Interim Constitution of Southern Sudan, 2005.
The Management of the Centre is under the direct responsibility of the Chairperson as Chief Executive. The chairperson is assisted in his/her day to day management responsibilities and duties by the Deputy Chairperson.
The Deputy Chairperson is responsible for the day to day implementation of the decisions of the Board and supervision of staff.
