> I work on http://data.worldbank.org/ and as you may know, we have

> http://www.knbs.or.ke/ (national stats office)
> And ideall any other ministries or departments with public (ideally open)

> If there isn't something like this, ideas for how to do it much

> The UN's list of stats offices may be a good start:
