Welcome to the Press

Press releases

The Press Office of the Federal Statistical Office publishes most up-to-date statistical data in about 550 press releases per year. Apart from the daily press releases, we publish the "Figure of the Week" (in German) every Tuesday at 11 a.m.; this is a brief release on an interesting statistical issue.


Every Friday at 10 a.m., the Press Office publishes a weekly preview showing all press publications of the subsequent week. For long-term orientation, we also offer an annual release calendar for major economic indicators.

Press conferences

We hold press conferences and press briefings (only in German) on major issues. The entire hand-outs we distribute on such occasions are also offered on our website as soon as they have been released.
