    DCS launches ‘’Lanka Stat’ and ‘LankaStatMap’

    April 30, 2017

    The Department of Census and Statistics (DCS) launched its first mobile data dissemination App “Lanka Stat” on 26th April.

    The “Lanka Stat” mobile application, in the first stage, works on Android operating system (OS) based Smart phones including Tablet PCs.

    The main objective of this development is to enhance the timeliness and efficiency of data dissemination by sending demographic and socio economic indices released by the department directly to mobile phones of the data users.


    The “Lanka Stat” Android App could be obtained through Google Play Store.


    In addition, the department also launched a sub website named “LankaStatMap” on the same day. This sub website could be accessed with any PC or a Smart phone through “map.statistics.gov.lk” or through the link provided to it on the home page of DCS main website www.statistics.gov.lk. The “LankaStatMap” site is able to display the spatial differences of the statistics disseminated by the DCS for Administrative units (Province, District, Divisional Secretariat and Grama Niladhari division) in many different views using geographical maps.


    As a basic step, the information collected in Sri Lanka Census of Population and Housing – 2012 are included in the LankaStatMap sub website and the data is disseminated at all the administrative levels from Provincial level to the Grama Niladhari Division level.
