The State Statistical Office (SSO) produces and disseminates official statistics about the Macedonian economy and society as a basis for making decisions based on quality information. Quality is defined as "the totality of characteristics of an entity that bears on its ability to satisfy stated or implied need" (ISO 8402:1986) or "the degree to which a set of inherent characteristics of an object fulfils requirements" (ISO 9000:2005). The quality of statistical results is measured to the extent to which the statistics are relevant, accurate and reliable, timely and punctual, coherent and comparable, accessible and clear, i.e. according to principles 11 to 15 of the European Statistics Code of Practice (2017).
