Central Statistics Office (Ireland)

The Central Statistics Office (CSO) (Irish: An Phríomh-Oifig Staidrimh) is the statistical agency responsible for the gathering of "information relating to economic, social and general activities and conditions" in Ireland, in particular the National Census which is held every five years. The office is answerable to the Taoiseach and has its main offices in Cork. The CSO was established, on a statutory basis, by the Statistics Act, 1993 in an attempt to reduce the number of separate offices responsible for collecting statistics for the state.

The CSO had existed, as an independent Royal Irish Constabulary.

The current Director-General of the Central Statistics Office is Pádraig Dalton.
