Policies for Statistics Sweden's Statistics Operations

Statistics Sweden has produced a number of policies that affect statistics operations. Here is a selection of those that have been translated into English.

Data protection policy

Statistics Sweden’s data protection policy fulfils two main purposes. The first is to describe the rules in the GDPR that are essential for Statistics Sweden in a more accessible format and to explain how the agency interprets these rules. The second purpose is to enable Statistics Sweden to acquire certain certifications which require the presence of a data protection policy.
