Statistics Portugal is acknowledged at an internal and external level as a reference statistical institution:
as a producer and provider of high-quality official statistical information;
as an independent and reliable organisation;
as an entity stimulating statistical literacy in society;
as a committed and efficient entityininternational cooperation.
The Mission of Statistics Portugal is all the more demanding as its activities are subject to permanent evolution. Statistical information, as a mirror of reality, must remain relevant and therefore monitor constant changes in reality, identifying new needs and deciding what must be assessed at each moment in time.
Statistical operations follow internationally established patterns, intended to ensure their quality, and their results are disseminated simultaneously to the whole society.
Statistics Portugal delegates in other national entities the production of some official statistics, but ensuring nonetheless the methodological coordination and production quality, as well as its dissemination.
Vision is the guideline for the development of an organisation, establishing the goals to be achieved.
