Publishing statistics

Printer-friendly version

Latvian publishing statistics are collected based on the Cabinet of Ministers regulation and Section 4 of the Statistics Law, thus ensuring that goals of the national Official statistics programme are met.

The statistics consist of the data on publishing that are collected based on reports on publishing sent in by publishers and on legal deposit copies received by the National Library of Latvia (NLL).

Collections include the data on annual publishing output but may also include the data on books published the previous year if the legal deposit copies of those have been received during the statistical year, which begins on 15 January.
