Department of Statistics, full name is Department of Statistics to the Government of the Republic of Lithuania, is an institution in Lithuania which is managed by the government. It was founded in 1990 by a resolution during the process of Lithuanian re-establishment of independence and codified by the Law on Statistics of the Republic of Lithuania.[1] The institution became a member of the European Statistical System in 2004.

A Director General, appointed by the Prime Minister, oversees its operations. Several commissions and working groups analyze its operations and suggest improvements. An advisory body, the Statistical Council, consists of representatives from Lithuanian governmental bodies, NGOs, researchers, the media, and other interested parties; the Council's makeup and operations are subject to governmental regulation.
