The statistics however reflect an attrition of two hundred ninety-three (293) less service users for the month of August. In July the CSC recorded five hundred thirty-eight (538) service users while in August the number depreciated to two hundred forty-five (245).

On the other hand, non-documentation-related services (Ministry of Gender and LISGIS, for example) stood at six hundred thirty-two (632) for the two months.
