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.


More Press releases


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.
