Official Statistics in Romania – Legislative Stipulations and Fundamental Principles

Cristina SACALA

It is important to underline that since the nineties, National Institute of Statistics permanently relies in its activity on a set of fundamental principles included in important normative documents. We draw attention on the following stipulation of 1992: “To carry out its attributions, the National Institute of Statistics has to provide, during the whole statistical research the registration and publication, protection measures for natural or legal persons interests which could be touched by revealing data regarding the patrimony and activity, according to the principles of statistical data confidentiality and to legal norms on classified information” (Government Ordinance no.9/1992 regarding official statistics, approved with modifications and completions by the Law no.11/1994, republished in Official Journal no.763/October 18, 2002).
