Access to Information

All published data are available free of charge on the website of the Croatian Bureau of Statistics.

The right of access to information and reuse of information is exercised in line with the Act on the Right of Access to Information (NN, Nos 25/13 and 85/15).

The aim of the Act is to enable and ensure the exercise of the right of access to information guaranteed by the Constitution of the Republic of Croatia, and the reuse of information by natural and legal persons, through the openness and public nature of the work of public authorities.

The right of access to information entails the right of a user to request and receive information, as well as the obligation of public authorities to provide access to the information requested, that is, to publish the information even when no particular request has been made, when publication stems from their obligation prescribed by the law or some other general regulation.

Information is any data possessed by a public authority, in the form of a document, record, dossier, register or any other form, regardless of how it is presented (written, drawn, printed, recorded, magnetic, optical, electronic or any other record).

The reuse of information means the use of information from a public authority by a natural or legal person, for commercial or non-commercial purposes, different from the original purpose for which that information was created. The exchange of information between public authorities for the purpose of performing the work within their competence shall not be deemed to be reuse.

Data users have the right to:

  • copy, publish, distribute and communicate information to the public
  • process information
  • use information for commercial and non-commercial purposes, combining them with other information and including them into their product.

When downloading information for further use, users shall state the data source.
