Taking into account the state of emergency throughout the territory of the Republic of Moldova, aiming at ensuring the security and health of NBS employees and respondents, as well as for preventing the spread of the novel coronavirus (also known as COVID-19), NBS informs that starting with the 16th of March the activities of the institution have been adjusted as follows.

During the state of emergency, the NBS staff works remotely, from 8:00 to 17:00, and offers answers to citizens by phone or e-mail.

Any questions or requests can be addressed:

The Regional Centres of Statistics and their territorial subdivisions will work with a reduced number of staff. They will undertake measures of protection in order to ensure the safety and health of employees and of respondents. The access to territorial offices will be limited, avoiding crowds and respecting the distance of at least 1 m between persons.

We recommend that respondents use of the e-reporting platform www.raportare.gov.md for the statistical questionnaires available online, see the list here. The questionnaires which are not included in the platform can be sent by e-mail, fax or telephone.

The contact details of regional statistical offices and of territorial subdivisions:

The NBS is aware that, under the current circumstances, the activity of some enterprises will be disrupted, and for some respondents it would be a problem to provide data within the pre-set deadlines.  For such cases, the enterprises are requested to inform (in written form, by e-mail or by phone) the NBS staff about the impossibility of meeting the respective deadlines and to provide the extended date of questionnaires’ submission which should be agreed with the NBS.

Update: In accordance with Law no. 69 of May 21, 2020 regarding the establishment of measures during the state of emergency in public health, the deadline for submitting financial statements for 2019 is extended from May 29 to June 30, 2020.

We also inform that in accordance with paragraph 26 (6) of the same Decision, for 2019 the financial statements of medium and large entities and the consolidated financial statements of groups are NOT subject to mandatory audit.

Starting with the 16th of March, during the State of Emergency period, NBS suspends the visits of the interviewers to the households selected for participation within the following statistical surveys:

  • Labour Force Survey
  • Household Budget Survey

Instead, the interviewers will contact the households and will collect the necessary data via the phone.

The NBS respectfully requests the households members to answer the calls and requests of the interviewing staff to contact them, and to provide support in data collection. For any questions related to the mentioned statistical surveys the households can contact the Regional Centres for Statistics.

NBS aims at maintaining the production of statistical data and its dissemination on the official website and StatBank, in compliance with the Dissemination calendar, in order to satisfy the informational needs of data users. 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.
