The Statistical Office of the Republic of Slovenia (SURS) is the main producer and coordinator of national statistics in Slovenia. In line with the National Statistics Act SURS is a professionally independent Government service. The mission is to provide to users statistical data on the status and trends in the economic, demographic, labour market and social fields. These data are of sufficient quality, timely, comparable in time and internationally, and presented clearly and understandably.
The Statistical Office of the Republic of Slovenia (SURS) offers up to date monthly and quarterly reports on labour market indicators. Three data sets 'by themes' relate to labour market issues. The first data set, 'Labour market', covers general labour market indicators, employment and unemployment rates, labour migration, and working hours. The second one, ‘Earnings and labour costs’, provides data about wages and labour costs. The third data set, ‘Quality of Life’, reports information about income, poverty, and social exclusion.
Data are obtained through statistical surveys that are carried out by the statistics office; these are set out in the annual programme of statistical surveys. In addition to data and visualisation charts, each issue contains a commentary, short methodological explanations, basic statistical definitions and a description of the survey.
The Statistical Office of the Republic of Slovenia measured user satisfaction and trust in the data in 2021. The overall satisfaction with SURS products and services increased (from 8.1 in 2020 to 8.3 in 2021 on a rating scale of 1 to 10). Rapid reports and the SiStat database are the most visited. An increasingly important channel for delivering new data is social media posts viewed almost 10 million times in 2021. Users are conducting increasingly sophisticated queries, cutting across more statistical domains. They expressed a high level of agreement with the statement that they would recommend SURS as a source of statistical data.
