The United Nations Economic Commission for Europe (UNECE) was set up in 1947 by ECOSOC. It is one of five regional commissions of the United Nations. UNECE's major aim is to promote pan-European economic integration.

The Statistical Division of UNECE plays a central role in coordinating international statistical activities between the countries of the UNECE region and beyond, helping to strengthen, modernize and harmonize statistical systems. Everything we do is guided by the Fundamental Principles of Official Statistics. We are at the cutting edge of meeting the challenges in official statistics related to: emerging topics; new developments in traditional areas of statistics; concepts that are difficult to define or hard to measure; new sources, tools and processes.
