After the declared end of the coronavirus (COVID-19) epidemic in Slovenia on 1 June 2020, the Statistical Office of the Republic of Slovenia is still facing some difficulties in data collection, checking and processing. The quality of data is extremely important for us, which is why we are taking care that the published statistics continue to be of the highest possible level.
The impact of COVID-19 on our economy and society can be monitored in regular and new releases on our website. In the Release Calendar
we inform our users about planned releases and record possible changes in release dates.
These are new release dates of planned releases:
The quality of the published data can be monitored in methodological materials
- 5. 8. 2020: Tourist arrivals and overnight stays, detailed data, Slovenia, 2019 (originally planned for 2. 4. 2020)
- June 2021: Commercial property price indices, Slovenia for 2008–2019, 1st quarter 2020 and 2 quarter 2020 (originally planned for 28. 5. 2020, 1. 7. 2020 and 1. 10. 2020). The exact release date will be communicated when the Release Calendar for 2021 is issued in early November 2020.
When publishing statistical data, we are regularly updating the corresponding metadata in methodological explanations and quality reports. Please pay attention to methodological notes in individual releases and to notes in the SiStat Database, where we are informing you if the published data are less reliable.
We will continue to monitor and analyse the impact of the current situation on statistical data while exploring the possibility of using additional sources to improve data quality.
We are aware that in the current circumstances the operation of some of our partners reporting us your data is still disrupted. To be able to provide the data showing the impact of COVID-19 on our economy and society, it is vitally important that you continue to send us your data.
We also ask all selected persons receiving written invitations to participate in our surveys to respond to our request. Only with your cooperation will we be able to provide high-quality data.
In July 2020, we will also resume with data collection on individuals and households, namely in the field. The selected persons will receive a notification letter by post before the arrival of the interviewer, informing them that they were selected and inviting them to participate in the data collection. In case you would rather cooperate by phone, this option is also available. While performing their work, the authorized interviewers will follow all the prescribed safety measures.
Help and additional information is provided constantly via email:
We will continue to answer data inquiries during the office hours (Monday−Thursday: 9.00−15.30, Friday: 9.00−14.30) without interruptions electronically via email@example.com
