During the health emergency, Istat set out a series of actions to ensure the continuity and quality of statistical production even in a crisis situation.

The Institute adopted sustainable acquisition techniques for the collection of statistical data and put its expertise at the service of the country, introducing methodological solutions and innovations in the use of new data sources. Thanks to a significant investment in digitalisation, the production and dissemination of official statistics, essential for measuring the evolution of economy and society, have never stopped.

During the Covid-19 emergency, Istat concentrated its efforts on carrying out a series of thematic surveys to collect and make available to institutions, public decision-makers, households and businesses all the information needed to analyse the main effects of the health crisis on economy and society.

Istat is now ready to provide the necessary answers to support and monitor the recovery and build the future of the country.
