Experimental statistics is produced by using new data sources and methods in making attempts to expand the range of statistics or the level of detail thereof based on the needs of data users.
It should be noted that the methods used in experimental statistics are not constant, approbated or internationally harmonized and can be changed to improve data quality. Central Statistical Bureau (CSB) publishes experimental statistics to get user feedback, evaluate analytical potential of the data and relevance thereof to the actual reality and data user needs.
The CSB believes that data users may find experimental data series valuable, and opinion of the data users may serve as a basis for making a decision to include this statistics in the Official Statistics Programme. By publishing experimental statistics, the CSB provides data users with new sources of information that may be used for decision making.
