Abstract
This paper is dedicated to the 100th anniversary of establishing the State Statistical Office (an ancestor of today’s Czech and Slovak statistical offices) in 1919. The paper first describes troubles with organization of the statistical service in Austria-Hungary where the Austrian and Hungarian parts of the monarchy had separate statistical services with different leaderships. In addition, separate land statistical offices with limited competencies operated in the lands of Cisleithanian. The paper also deals with preparations of the framework established by the Statistical Act, adopted in Czechoslovakia in January 1919, depicts lengthy negotiations concerning specifics of this law throughout the year 1919 and points out gradual development of the work of the State Statistical Office over 1919 – 1921.
