Statistics Lithuania estimates migration flows based on the data of the declaration of the place of residence. Not all residents of Lithuania when changing their place (country) of usual residence for a period longer than 6 months declare it. Therefore, surveys on undeclared migration are carried out and, based on their results, undeclared migration flows are estimated.

Gross domestic product (GDP) is the final result of the production activity of residents (all economic entities operating within the territory of the country). 

Gross national income (GNI) is the gross primary income received by resident institutional units: compensation of employees, production and imports-related taxes (minus subsidies), property income (receivable minus payable), gross operating surplus, and gross mixed income.  

GNI is calculated as follows: final result generated within the territory of the country (GDP) minus primary income received by non-residents plus primary income received by residents from other countries.

Statistics Lithuania is responsible only for the production of short-term forecasts: provisional quarterly GDP estimate (released two months before the final estimate) and consumer price index (inflation) monthly forecast. This information is published in press releases on the key economic and social development indicators.

Inflation is a decrease in the purchasing power of a currency unit, which manifests itself in a long-term growth in the general average price level.

Inflation is not an increase in prices for certain goods, services or their groups. Inflation means an increase in the general price level for all goods and services. However, prices of some goods and services may remain unchanged or, actually, decrease even amidst inflation.

Inflation is expressed in per cent.

Inflation is contrary to deflation. Deflation is the increase in the value of a currency unit, which manifests itself in a decrease in the general average price level.

Annual inflation shows the relative change in the average price level between the reporting month and the corresponding month of the previous year.

Average annual inflation shows the relative change in the average price level in the last twelve months and the corresponding previous twelve months.

To measure inflation in Lithuania, the consumer price index (CPI) is used. It is the main indicator of consumer inflation, reflecting the average change in the price level for consumer goods and services purchased, paid for and used by households to satisfy their consumption needs over a certain time period. The CPI does not cover goods and services intended for production, profit, capital formation.

The CPI is the main means for the indexation of pensions, wages and salaries, benefits, fines, taxes, indemnity rates. It is also used for the recalculation of various indicators at constant prices, as well as for analytical and forecasting purposes.

The basis for the CPI calculation is data on prices and tariffs for representative goods and services and expenditure of the population on consumer goods and services. The main source of information on prices is registration of prices and tariffs for representative goods and services in the trade and service outlets of all forms of ownership sampled. The change in the price level for every good or service has a different influence on the all-items CPI. This is determined by the relative share (weight) of expenditure on every good or service in the overall structure of household monetary consumption expenditure. Hence, when calculating the CPI, the ratios of prices for consumer goods and services are counterweighted using the relative shares (weights) of expenditure on consumer goods and services in total household monetary consumption expenditure. Data on household monetary consumption expenditure from the Household Budget Survey serve as a basis for the compilation of weights.

The main information on the CPI is available on the Official Statistics Portal.

Statistics Lithuania will make every effort to publish statistical information according to the calendar provided on the Official Statistics Portal, as provided in the Official Statistics Programme. Any risk of delay will be announced in advance.

Our priority – monthly news releases which promptly show changes in the national economy. In the next two months, we plan to publish news releases on price indices, retail trade and catering, activity of industrial enterprises, foreign trade as well as changes in business and population opinion over a month, inflation forecast. In addition, we will prepare up-to-date information on changes in the number of operating entities as we already receive information about enterprises which terminate or stop their activity. We also expect to estimate changes in migration flows or increase in turnover of enterprises trading in food products. Such information will be published to the public as soon as possible. This is our commitment at this difficult time.

In response to radically changed situation, we have urgently reorganized our statistical data collection processes by eliminating any possibility of direct contact. We have taken preventive measures to ensure the quality and timeliness of the statistical data and statistics produced on the basis thereof.

With the view of ensuring uninterrupted receipt of administrative data, we cooperate and coordinate our actions with administrative data providers.

One of the biggest challenges is to estimate inflation during the pandemic. In order to protect our employees who register prices every month for more than 4,000 trade and service enterprises and to reduce the spread of the virus, we cooperate with retail chains regarding help in collecting price data we need. At this difficult time, this partnership is particularly important.

We are grateful to the enterprises participating in the surveys which at this challenging time provide statistical data within specified terms and cooperate with our specialists. The data provided by the respondents are particularly important for ensuring the quality of short-term statistical information when administrative data sources are not yet available.

We encourage respondents to submit statistical reports electronically and to inform about temporary suspension of business activity. If business activity is suspended, we invite to submit statistical reports before the term ends.

In April, the interviewers will not visit the persons sampled for statistical surveys. Those who have received a letter from Statistics Lithuania are invited to fill in the statistical questionnaires online and to provide information to the interviewers by phone.

More information is available at e. Statistika verslui and e. Statistika gyventojams.
