The study employed a descriptive survey research design. The population comprised 8,801. A total of 881 respondents from both the Board Headquarter and Zonal offices were sampled for the study using multistage sampling technique which yielded 420 male administrative staff and 461 female respectively.

The instrument used for data collection was questionnaire. The instrument consisted of twenty-five (25) item questionnaire titled Data Management Problem Questionnaire (DMPQ).The instruments were analyzed using mean and standard deviation for the research questions while the null hypotheses were analyzed with t-test statistics at 0.05 level of significance. The results of the data analysis revealed that the major ways adopted by the staff of Secondary Education Management Board (SEMB) for data collection includes; research findings, or case study, public opinion, normal official process, school inspection, etc. Politics influenced data management in a number of ways like; faulty projections for educational planning, falsification of data in favour of government intention, etc. There was also the issues of unwritten government policy that influences Educational administrators to inflate statistical records; that inadequate facilities/ equipment such as computers, computer diskette, flash disc, CD Rom, microfilms, microfiche as well as lack of training on the use of modern technologies like the internet creates serious problem to proper data management. Based on the above findings a number of recommendations were developed that; Educational administrators should diversify their methods of generating data for planning; issues of data management should be separated from politics, policies of data management should be maintained by all the department and units in the Board to avoid irregularities being perpetrated, enough facilities and equipment should be provided for effective data management and in-service training on the modern technologies like internet as well as qualified personnel to handle data related matters especially at the statistics unit of the Secondary Education Management Board to ensure professional growth should be maintained.
