The statistics about postal services are used to describe the range of services, volume information, income and costs as well as information about employment. This information allows us to observe and analyse the situation within the sector, and take action and follow up when needed. The government agency responsible for the statistics is Transport Analysis (previously called SIKA).

The statistics are produced annually in cooperation with Statistics Sweden, Transport Analysis and the Swedish Post and Telecom Authority. In addition to these three government agencies, the users are ministries and other government agencies, trade organisations, enterprises, the media and other interested parties.
