Confidentiality Questions

  • Is the CBS allowed to provide one person/institution's data to a third party?

    The laws forbids CBS to disclose a person or institution's data gathered through a survey to a third party. We may not reveal the identity of any specific reporting units.

  • Is the confidentiality of the information that the CBS collects guaranteed?

    Collected data may only be used for statistical purposes, which means that information can only be published in a way that makes it impossible to identify particular reporting units (businesses, households). Information will only be published as part of aggregate data (averages, sums) by fields of activity, regions and similar.
