Statistics Lithuania’s work in quarantine mode

How will we ensure the collection of statistical data and production of information?

 

How will we ensure the collection of statistical data and production of information?

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.
