To guarantee access to statistical surveys, to use up-to-date technologies for publishing official statistical information, to remove any barriers to the use of data. These are the aims of the Institute’s publication operations.
Through Istat databases and information systems users can choose the information according to their needs. In some cases it is possible to build customised tables, in other cases, data are structured in prepackaged downloadable tables. Each database is accompanied by methodologies, classifications, definitions related to the topic.
The datasets are collections of data for prompt publication of the results of a statistical survey or analysis disseminated without a regular basis.
Microdata files are collections of elementary data. Referring to Istat’s surveys, these files are released free of charge and in compliance with the principle of statistical secrecy and protection of personal data.
Survey results are made available through press releases; they include forecasting and short-, medium- and long-term economic analysis and the development of microsimulation models of the effects of fiscal policies on households, businesses and institutions (Economic forecasts and microsimulations).
Through Paper, electronic and interactive publications and specialist publications (Rivista di statistica ufficiale, Istat Working Papers) Istat promotes and enhances the research activity, sharing the results of studies in the field of official statistics.

ISTAT is one of the largest producers of open data in Italy: it contributes a significant amount to the number of released datasets.
