The aim of the assignment is to monitor and publish selected (most important) economic and social indicators in the form of long-term and methodically comparable time series commencing in 1990. The bulletin mainly employs data from the Czech Statistical Office, the Ministry of Finance, the Czech National Bank, the Ministry of Labour and Social Affairs (MoLSA) and Eurostat. The authors monitor the development of and changes in individual methodologies. Should further clarification be required, the data obtained is supplemented by the authors’ own calculations taking into account the applicable legislation.

The bulletin provides the most important information required for users in the decision-making, academic and research spheres. In addition, the findings will be used in the conceptual and legislative activities of the MoLSA.

Quarterly updated data

Part of the data is based on publications or internet overviews issued by various institutions, above all the Czech Statistical Office, Ministry of Finance, Czech National Bank and Ministry of Labour and Social Affairs, but in this overview these data are also sorted and concentrated for users’ convenience. The data are presented in the form of long-term time series, along with additional calculations of the interrelations between indicators and overviews of key social, tax and insurance data compiled by RILSA according to the applicable legislation.

Besides this quarterly version, in May every year a printed version of the indicators is also published in summary form.
