The municipal statistic, along with the statistics of the federal government and the federal state, constitutes a part of the overall system of official statistics. In Germany, it is a fundamental part of the democratic state's information infrastructure. In exercising their rights and in observation of their duties to independently manage the affairs of the local community, the major cities maintain their own municipal statistics (Article 28, paragraph 3 GG - German Basic Law). By doing so, the cities provide themselves and their citizens with the knowledge, based on numbers, which they need for municipal planning and decisions.
