Data Location


Regarding up-to date status of data, the documents are available, but some are very slow processed. It is currently (as of November 2014.) unclear whether the data from the 2011 census is fully published.

Census data is available in a machine-readable format (MS Excel), but most periodical publications are not (available only in PDF or HTML).

Reproduction in whole or in part in any form or medium of any of CBS publications without acknowledging the Croatian Bureau of Statistics as the source is prohibited.

Reviewer comments

This entry is accepted without any modifications. Since census data is available in a machine-readable format, the "Is the data machine readable?" should maybe be changed to "Yes".
