About Us

We are some 2,258 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 2015 has been published

The remuneration of Members of the Bundestag, the calculation of the minimum wage, or the administrative burden on businesses: the Annual Report 2015 offers an overview of how these topics are linked to official statistics.

The Annual Report includes an interview with Minister of State Professor Helge Braun on the survey of situations faced by businesses, in which businesses assessed the administrative infrastructure. The quality standards underlying the Federal Statistical Office's work and all official statistics are another key topic. In addition, the interview with Stefan Schweinfest, Director of the Statistics Division at the United Nations, provides interesting insights into the international requirements applying to statistical systems.
