The most recent statistical reports


New indexes

In the support of the national development, GaStat has launched more than 45 statistical products as a first stage for new products. These statistics included economic, social, demographic, Umrah, labour market, energy, knowledge, environment, culture, sports, entertainment, and security and safety statistics.
These new statistical products come as one of the most important statistical production standards, which is, the importance of the product in meeting the local requirements. Such as, issuing statistical products in line with the indicators of the 2030 Saudi vision, indicators that help support a specific government entity's decision in the context of national development, or regional requirements, such as, developing the labour force survey according to a unified methodology for GCC countries and what has been done with the foreign investment indicators as a regional requirement for the council, or international requirements, such as, health, culture and environment statistics which came in the context of sustainable development approved by the united nations.
The second standard of the statistical production is the importance of enhancing or developing an existing statistical product that requires additions or modifications that meet the existing needs to reflect new outcomes that support policy and decision makers in various fields. And after applying these standards on the new statistical products, the next stage is designing and experimenting with collaboration with relevant entities through a joint team work and continuous workshops before the launch to make sure all statistical outcome requirements are met.
Then comes the launch phase and the continuous enhancement according to the evaluation processes, so that the statistical production journey is a continuous process to ensure the achievement of the most important objectives of GaStat in supporting development.
