An institute serving citizens, companies and political decision-makers

STATEC (National Institute of Statistics and Economic Studies of the Grand Duchy of Luxembourg) is an administration under the authority of the Ministry of Economics. Nevertheless, it is scientifically and professionally independent, i.e. that STATEC sets its work plan in conformity to the national and European statistical legislation, and generates and disseminates its data in complete neutrality.

Its missions are to provide public and private decision-makers, along with the citizens, a high-quality statistical information service. STATEC is committed to producing statistics, analyses and studies mirroring a detailed, reliable and objective image of the Luxembourg society.

STATEC coordinates the Luxembourg Statistical System that is organised in consonance with the principle of statistical centralisation.



In the context of a sanitary, social and economic crisis, statistics are crucial. They are essential to monitor and anticipate the evolution of the number of infections and hospital beds. They are also vital in order to estimate the impact of this pandemic on the living conditions of our citizens and on the country’s economic activity. By responding to surveys, you help the government take the necessary action to respond to the crisis. We need timely, accurate and reliable data to prepare future forecasts in this unprecedented context. We therefore call on all individuals, households and businesses to continue responding to STATEC’s surveys. We need you more than ever!

According to the first provisional results, the current account ended in a surplus of 2.8 billion euros in 2019, a very slight decrease compared to 2018 (-0.3%). The deficit (negative balance) on transactions in goods rose to 1.1 billion euros in 2019 and thus decreased by 670 million. This change is explained by the fact that the surplus generated by merchanting (purchase and resale of goods abroad without physical national border crossing) increased faster (+811 million) than the deficit of goods (-142 million).
