All national statistical offices & agencies worldwide
Updated: 2 July 2014
These are links to the national statistical offices (or the equivalent
official statistical agencies) of all countries worldwide. Most offices now have relatively stable websites - often with easy-to-use
on-line data access. Sometimes the websites even have an English-language version.
However, there are a few countries where the statistical offices have rather
unreliable web access or constantly broken web links. While I try to check the following links on a regular basis it is still possible
that some may only work from time to time, or may not work at all. Please also note that some countries do not have one central
statistical office, but several statistical agencies or government departments.
