A stocking full of stats!

Take note – story published 1 year ago

While there's always a certain amount of nagging doubt that Santa Claus will bring you exactly what you want at Christmastide, there are no such doubts about the reliability of the Central Statistical Bureau (CSB) which delivers its bumper sack of statistics every year without fail.

This year is no exception, with the CSB just publishing its statistical yearbook for 2022, which is stuffed fuller than a Christmas goose with facts, figures, graphs, charts and data.

The Statistical Yearbook of Latvia is the most exhaustive annual publication of statistical information on the national economy and socio-economic processes in the country. The publication reflects data on 2021, compared to previous years. The yearbook provides information on socio-political situation, economy and finance, population and social processes, sectors of national economy as well as on science and technologies. over 11 thematic chapters: Population; labour market, social security and health, education, science and culture, economy and finances, foreign trade in goods, business, information technologies, environment and weather conditions.

A separate chapter is devoted to international comparisons of Latvian social and economic indicators. Information in the yearbook is compiled in tables, charts and maps, providing also explanation of the main statistical terms. The yearbook is based on the information available to the Central Statistical Bureau of Latvia and other institutions. The statistical information was obtained by conducting statistical surveys as well as by using data from public registers and other information systems.

The Yearbook is published in both Latvian and English. 

A valuable resource for researchers, students, academics and people compiling questions for pub quizzes, the Statistical Yearbook of Latvia 2022 is available to download free of charge regardless of whether you have been naughty or nice this year. In fact, 75% of the population has been naughty (provisional, unverified data based upon a poll of four people in the LSM office).
