The Statistical Office of the Slovak Republic participated in the exhibition Bibliotheca/Pedagogica 2017, by presenting their products and services, at the Incheba Exhibition Centre in Bratislava during 9-10 November 2017.
Those interested could familiarise themselves at the statistical office´s exhibition stands with the results of work conducted by the Statistical Office in the form of publications and informational and propagation documents, while applying in practice the data searching in the Office´s electronic databases. There was a strong public interest in the publications from demographic statistics (We in Numbers, The Main Trends of the Population Development of the SR…) as well as for the comprehensive publications from various statistical fields (Slovak Republic in Figures, Slovakia in the EU…).
The visitors were also interested also in other statistical fields, mainly in data in the industrial production, science and technology, environment and agriculture.
