The Czech Statistical Office can trace its history back to the communist era in 1969, when it was created by the Act of the Czech National Council No. 2/1969.[1] It has existed continuously since, although its remit changed somewhat over time. It was reauthorized by the current Czech Republic in 1995. However, in the years between 1969 and 1995, some control over statistical matters had gradually passed to local governments. Thus, while the basic provisions of the modern CSO were brought into effect on 15 June 1995, the authorizing legislation allowed until 1 January 1996 for complete control over statistics throughout the Republic to be exercised by the CSO.
