National Program of Official Statistics

The Official Statistics program is the main document that defines the strategy for the development of official statistics and the National Statistical System for the five-year period, aiming to meet the requirements of users for quality statistics.

The program is prepared by INSTAT in cooperation with the statistical agencies, taking into consideration the opinion of the Statistics Council which is sent to the Council of Ministers and to the Albanian Parliament for proposal.

This document is drafted in accordance with the provisions of Articles 7 and 8 of Law no. 17/2018 "On official statistics". INSTAT is also responsible for implementing and reporting the Official Statistics Program to the Statistics Council and the Albanian Parliament.

The Official Statistics Program also serves to orient INSTAT and other statistical agencies towards the quality of statistical production according to the standards provided by the statistical principles of the European Statistics Code of Practice and the Acquis Communautaire.
