Exceptionally, permissions can be granted on request to allow data access from home. These authorizations are nevertheless subject to the agreement of the producers, and some sources may therefore be excluded. Interested persons are invited to check it before their request, with each producer concerned.


The Statistical Confidentiality Committee ensures compliance with the rules of statistical confidentiality and gives its opinion on requests to communicate individual data collected during statistical surveys or transmitted to the official statistical system for the purpose of compiling statistics. It carries out the same role for tax data (Article L135 D of the Livre des Procédures Fiscales – Register of tax procedures).

The remit of the Statistical Confidentiality Committee is set out in Law no. 51-711 of 7 June 1951 on legal obligation, coordination and confidentiality in the field of statistics.

The role and operating methods of the committee along with its composition are described on the Committee page
