Key national statistics such as demographic and economic indicators (GDP, unemployment, population, etc). To satisfy this category, the following minimum criteria must be met:

  • GDP for the whole country updated at least quarterly
  • Unemployment statistics updated at least monthly
  • Population updated at least once a year

Data Location


The National Statistics Institute collects the data and it can be retrieved:

(1) online, free of charge, PDF format, for the main indicators

(2) online, interrogation of the database using the interface provided by an institution. Most data is free but it requires an account (also free). Data can't be downloaded in bulk.

(3) Offline, data can be downloded in bulk data, for a fee, after submitting a specific request

(4) the data are under copyright © 1998-2014 Institutul National de Statistica - ROMANIA, and it is unclear if there is a licence.

Reviewer comments

Note that I changed the Bulk download to Yes, as it is possible to get them but one must make a request and pay a fee.
