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.
