The Higher Council of Statistics

Table of Contents

    The Higher Council of Statistics is an advisory body directly dependent on the federal Minister of Economy.

    The Council contributes to the production of all statistics which are of general interest and oversees the statistical works of the federal and regional institutions.

    However, its role is not only to advise. It can also take initiatives to drop some statistics or to create new ones.

    All this makes the Council an important body in the policy making in Belgium.
