The National Statistics Directorate has Revamped 
their website: www.dne.mopf.gov.tl

>The new website of the Direcção Nacional de 
>Estatística/National Directorate Statistics was 
>launched in December and features a lot of 
>information that would be useful to researchers. 
>The Directorate also holds a lot of data and 
>demographic information which can be made 
>available to researchers. The launch of the 
>website coincided with other launches:

>1. The launch of the first version of DevInfoTimorLeste
>A free source based software program which 
>allows the user to sort through the various 
>databases therein entered and sort and search 
>for their own analytical conclusions. Extremely 
>useful tool for planners, grad students, project 
>designers, etc. It is expected as the DNE 
>receives more historical pertinent survey 
>databases, and/or as new surveys such as the 
>2010 census, the TLSLS 2006, the current 
>Household survey, etc is concluded, a new 
>version of this software program will be

>detailed or conclusive enough. There is a
