What is I.Stat

I.Stat is the warehouse of statistics currently produced by the Italian National Institute of Statistics. Data are organized in a coherent and homogeneous way and are constantly upgraded.

How I.Stat works

Statistics are organised by theme; each theme is divided into more topics. Information can be searched by keyword and theme.

Data are presented in multidimensional tables which users can export in xls, csv and sdmx formats. Acting on variables, reference periods and the arrangement of heads and sides, moreover, it is possible to obtain custom tables and graphs.

Linked databases

For some topics of particular interest Istat provides dedicated information systems, in which data contained in I.Stat database are reorganized and, sometimes, supplemented with additional information provided by other bodies. The following information systems are available:

  • SocialCohesion.Stat collects indicators produced by the National Social Security Institute (Inps), the Italian National Institute of Statistics (Istat) and the Ministry of Labor and Social Policy on population dynamic, labour market, human capital, poverty, health, social protection and social insurance policies;
  • Immigrants.Stat is the data warehouse that reorganizes the statistics produced by Istat on foreign immigrants and new citizens;
  • PublicAdministration.Stat provides data on central and local governments.
