Sweden’s Official Statistics (SOS) are statistics that are particularly important for describing Sweden. Official statistics contribute to the development of our society by being objective and relevant, which benefits citizens.
Growth analysis has been tasked by the Government to be responsible for the official statistics within Swedish business sector. As a government agency responsible for statistics, we are responsible for ensuring that
