characteristics Gross Domestic Product, Consumer Price Index, Trade statistics of import and export, National population census Normally, the National Institute of Statistics has all these information, produced quaterly as noted in the interviews done with statisticians... but they are not available online and when they exist, they are not updated regularly. I have also noticed that these informations are also available in in-year reports of the ministry of finance, as they serve for financial projections. It is worth noticed that the National Institute of Statistics depends on the Ministry of Finance.
