About Us

We are some 2,600 employees who gather, collect, process, present and analyse statistical information in Wiesbaden, Bonn and Berlin. Our head office consisting of seven departments and the office leadership is located in Wiesbaden; two more departments are situated in the Bonn branch office. The i-Punkt, our information and service point in the federal capital of Berlin, directly and effectively informs and advises members of the German Parliament, the Federal Government, embassies and federal authorities, business associations and interested people from the Berlin-Brandenburg metropolitan area on available data of official statistics. Modern means of information and communication make it possible for all colleagues to cooperate easily with each other at their different locations.

Annual Report 2013 has been published

Our capital is supplied with information from the entire republic on a daily basis. The accessibility of independent data is crucial for those engaged in political and social debate. In our Annual report 2013, we present, among other things, our i-Punkt in Berlin as a statistical information provider. With its service office in the German Bundestag, it provides information and advisory services directly for the parliament and government agencies.

Also, Professor Friedrich Pukelsheim is our interview partner in the annual report. As an expert for the Bundestag, he was involved in designing the new electoral law. In the context of the census of buildings and housing, which was part of the 2011 Census, we held another interview with Dr. Henning Scherf, who for a long time has dealt with the impact of demographic change on housing.
