Statistics Estonia’s information for the emergency situation

The emergency situation has an impact on Statistics Estonia but it does not prevent us from fulfilling our main objective, or to collect data, produce statistics and offer statistics to the general public.

We are doing everything we can to collect and share critical information as quickly as possible and help make knowledge-based decisions by contributing reliable data.

Below you will find the main changes in our work organisation.

Data collection

We have suspended interviewers’ home visits for personal surveys until September. Data collection continues by phone interviews or online questionnaires.

We have also suspended interviewers’ home visits for SHARE, Time Use Survey and Estonian Household Finance and Consumption Survey, as phone and web interviews cannot be used for these surveys.

Additional information

Submitting data

As data providers might not be able to submit data on time, we are not imposing penalty payment until August 1. We are appealing to data providers to continue to submit data, as such data help us to also assess the impact of the current crisis.

If you have questions, please contact our customer service by calling +372 625 9100 or send an e-mail to klienditugi at stat dot ee.

! Please revise your data in the population register. Only accurate information help us to get a clear picture of the situation in Estonia and allow to plan the future.
