System of national statistics
National statistics is a professionally independent activity of implementing programmes of statistical surveys. Institutions in the system of national statistics are:
- Statistical Office of the Republic of Slovenia and authorised producers of national statistics
- Statistical Council of the Republic of Slovenia
- Statistical advisory committees
- Other professional and methodological advisory bodies
Institutions in the system of national statistics are responsible for producing official statistical data planned in the programmes of statistical surveys; this means that they take care that the necessary data are collected and processed according to the rules and that they are available to all that need them. In their work these institutions follow the principles of the European Statistics Code of Practice and the Fundamental Principles of Official Statistics of the United Nations Economic Commission for Europe. The most important of those principles are: neutrality, objectivity, professional independence, protection of statistical confidentiality and transparency.
