The measures described above support the further running of processes of collection, processing and dissemination of statistical data even in crisis situations.

Nevertheless, the NBS acknowledges that the circumstances created in the country, the limitations in the data collection from enterprises, establishments or households, but also in processing of data provided by other institutions of the public administration (administrative data sources), will have an impact on the volume and contents of collected data, as well as on the timeliness of processing and disseminating the statistical indicators. In this respect, any deviation from the dissemination calendar or change in the way of presentation of data will be announced in advance on the official website of the NBS.

NBS counts on the support and participation of respondents to ensure the qualitative and timely production of statistical data!
