The Central Sava Statistical Region (Slovene: Zasavska statistična regija) is a statistical region in Slovenia. It lies in Central Slovenia, mostly to the north of the Sava River, encompassing mostly territory that was part of the Central Sava Valley area of the traditional regions of Upper Carniola and Lower Styria.

The largest town in the region is Trbovlje. It is the smallest of the twelve statistical regions of Slovenia, but second in terms of population density. Industrial activities include mining and quarrying. It is the region in Slovenia with the highest decrease in population, partly due to natural decrease and partly to a negative net migration rate. There is a relative lack of jobs and high unemployment.
