Dataphyte Limited, Nigeria’s research and analytics company and publishers of the data journalism platform, has announced a content cooperation partnership with Statista Limited, the global data firm aimed at providing global access to Nigerian datasets.
Dataphyte in a statement on Thursday by its Chief Executive Officer, Joshua Olufemi, said the partnership gives 7Statista access to the use of data and reports it provides through its acknowledged data portal and socio-economic reporting platform.
“The partnership will expand Statista’s commitment to providing real-time insightful data from Africa’s largest economy to the global audience,” Olufemi said.
He said the partnership was part of Statista’s series of cooperation agreements targeted at increasing data about Africa’s social, economic and political ecosystem on its global online business platform.
Dataphyte’s mission, Olufemi added, is to increase access to socio-economic data on Nigeria and beyond, connecting with Statista’s vision of offering real-time data to support businesses and researchers with neatly curated data and actionable insights.
“This partnership coincides with the time Dataphyte itself is launching the first of its kind data merchant platform to reach beyond the shores of Nigeria,” Olufemi said.
Also speaking on the partnership, the director, Strategic Data Partnerships, Statista, Christopher Ekwuruke, said: “Dataphyte brings valuable insight into Nigeria to the Statista platform.
“As we expand our coverage on Africa, we look to great partners like Dataphyte to keep our readers informed about the state of the nation in numbers.
“Together, we look forward to sharing more insights and facts on the topics that take us deeper into Nigeria’s story of development.”

Some of the data are sold on its data merchandise website and explanatory articles published on its news website, Dataphyte.com.
