Federal Statistical Office (DESTATIS)
The Federal Statistical Office offers detailed up-to-date statistical information about Germany and its economy, such as earnings and labour costs, labour market, national accounts, population, prices and further topics.
The federal law on statistics specifies the duties and responsibilities of the federal statistical office, whose main task is to provide and disseminate objective, independent, and high quality data.
Destatis is the source of information for the Federal Government, the German Parliament, embassies and federal authorities as well as business associations. All users have access to the large database of Destatis available for basic and bespoke research.
