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.

Behind the figures: annual report 2012

This picture shows the Annual Report 2012

In its annual reports, the Federal Statistical Office presents people and projects that are behind the data and analyses. Two interviews contained in the current edition of the annual report show how relevant reliable data are for businesses and the society. The President of Deutsche Bundesbank, Jens Weidmann, emphasises the responsibility of politicians to be able to use reliable data. A different perspective regarding the importance of credible statistical data is shown by the interview with Ulrich Schneider of Paritätischer Wohlfahrtsverband (German Federation of Welfare Institutions).
