The new statistical database

You are visiting the new statistical database. This is a beta, i.e. a test version, however, the data are the same as in the old database. Therefore, there is no difference in which database you search for data. The data are updated on the dates announced in the release calendar, but it is possible that during the test period, the updates might not be displayed at 8 a.m. but a few hours later.

The statistical database presents official statistics by subject matter domains as follows: environment, economy, population, social life, the Population and Housing Census, sustainable development and integration. Each domain is divided further into sub-domains. Compared to the old database, foreign trade statistics are presented in more detail, as in addition to monetary value, the 8-digit commodity codes are now also presented as a quantity.

Information on database training is available here.
