SCB is an administrative agency and our main task is to supply customers with statistics for decision making, debate and research. We are mainly assigned these tasks by the government and different agencies, but we also have customers in the private sector and among researchers. Besides producing and communicating our statistical data, we are tasked with supporting and coordinating the Swedish system for official statistics.
We also take an active part in international statistical cooperation and offer our expertise to develop capacity within statistical agencies and statistical systems in low and middle income countries through the transfer of knowledge. The main part of our work is financed by the Swedish International Development Co-operation Agency, Sida.
1 400 employees work in Stockholm, Örebro and as field interviewers around the country.
