Stat'o'book – Statistical Overview of Slovenia 2016

A new Stat’o’book writes new stories. A brief selection of the most interesting data on Slovenia is presented.

Even though with 20,273 square kilometres and 2.06 million people Slovenia is a small country, the Statistical Office of the Republic of Slovenia collects vast amounts of data from as many as 21 statistical domains.

Data are important for everyone, be it for their work or simply to improve general knowledge, which is why we want to draw statistics closer to our users. This is the third edition of Stat’o’book. This time, too, we selected the most interesting and topical data, presented them in tables and charts, and together with brief comments transformed them into 22 statistical stories. The chapter on health was prepared in cooperation with the National Institute of Public Health.
