Information on National Statistical Systems

Country Profiles of Statistical Systems

The United Nations Statistics Division, in its mission to promote the development of national statistical systems, has developed a central repository of country profiles of statistical systems. The country profiles include, among others, a brief history of the country's statistical system, legal basis, the statistical programme and much more.

To browse through all available country profiles in the database, please click here.

Country profiles of statistical systems are updated by National Statistical Offices worldwide. To edit and update your respective country profiles, please click here. (Note: This is a restricted site available only to duly designated NSO staff.)
