Having in mind the emerging circumstances caused by the spread of COVID-19 that directly affect the statistical activities carried out by Statistical Office of Montenegro – MONSTAT, MONSTAT has opened the domain of COVID-19 in order to more effectively inform the public about changes resulting from the COVID-19 pandemic, which have an impact on production of official statistics.

In this regard, we highlight:

  • Response to the COVID-19 pandemic that emerged in order to overcome key challenges, before all, due to the impossibility to collect data directly from households through a direct interview method;
  • Important information intended for data users during the period of temporary measures;
  • Additional methodological recommendations published by international institutions in order to overcome certain methodological difficulties caused by COVID-19;
  • Additional data processing, at the request of the user, in order to understand the causes and consequences of COVID-19;

Aware of the importance of possession and providing data to scientific community, media and other users, MONSTAT will continue to produce and disseminate statistics in accordance with the announced Statistical Release Calendar. MONSTAT is constantly monitoring the situation and, in case of changes, we will timely inform our users.
