About Statistics Sweden

Our main task is to supply users and customers with statistics for decision making, debate and research. We do this mainly through assignments from the government and other government agencies. We also have customers from the private sector and among researchers.

Statistics Sweden is responsible for official statistics and for other government statistics. This means that we develop, produce and disseminate the statistics. In addition, we coordinate the system for the official statistics in Sweden.

We also conduct long-term cooperation projects with statistical offices in developing countries, which are financed by Sida.

Statistics Sweden is located in Solna and Örebro, and has about 1300 employees, of whom roughly 35 are field interviewers. They collect information for our surveys around the country. In total, operations amount to over one billion kronor annually, of which half is from government appropriations.

Respondents are important for the statistics

The statistics we produce are largely based on information submitted to us in various surveys from enterprises, government agencies and private persons.

Respondents are very important for the quality of the statistics. Therefore, we constantly work to facilitate the possibilities to contribute to the statistics.
