Programmes of statistical surveys

In addition to the National Statistics Act, the programmes of statistical surveys are the fundamental legal basis for the operation of the statistical system. There are two kinds of programmes: medium-term and annual. They determine the main tasks of the producers of national statistics – the Statistical Office of the Republic of Slovenia and uthorised producers of national statistics – in an individual year or a medium-term period. Programmes are adopted according to the prescribed procedure and published in the Official Journal of the Republic of Slovenia.

 

In line with the National Statistics Act, SURS and producers of national statistics cooperate in preparing reports on the implementation of objectives set out in programmes in an individual year or a medium-term period.

 

  • Medium-term programmes of statistical surveys are adopted for the period of five years; they determine the main goals, the key areas of development and the priorities of national statistics in Slovenia in individual periods. The proposal of each medium-term programme is prepared by SURS in cooperation with other authorised producers of national statistics. It is first discussed by the Statistical Council and then adopted by the Government of the Republic of Slovenia. In the end it is published in the Official Journal of the Republic of Slovenia. SURS prepares the interim and final reports on the implementation of goals set out in the program.
  • Annual programmes of statistical surveys are the legal basis for conducting statistical surveys in the current year. Each annual programme of statistical surveys contains a detailed overview of regular and development tasks to be implemented by all authorised producers of national statistics. They are divided into chapters, areas and modules. The proposal of the annual programme is prepared by SURS’s Director-General in cooperation with authorised producers of national statistics. The content is discussed by the Statistical Council and statistical advisory committees as representatives of statistical data users. When the year for which the annual programme was applicable is over, SURS and authorised producers prepare a Report on the Implementation of the Annual Programme of Statistical Surveys for the previous year. The report is submitted to the Statistical Council by 30 April next year.
