Abstract: The problem of inconsistency of of african data is not new. The determination of the nature and severity of this phenomenon, however, has become of much concern to interested observers. The appropriateness of this concern is reinforced by the need of African countries for timely and accurate data in order to ensure the successful implementation of their economic reform programmes. In this regard, current research has pointed out wide divergence in African data published by various international organizations as well as central statistical organizations and other public agencies in each country.
