MoSPI is committed to enhancing user experience and data accessibility through use of cutting-edge technologies and the adoption of global best practices.

The module has seven data products, namely National Accounts Statistics, Consumer Price Index, Index of Industrial Production, Annual Survey of Industries, Periodic Labour Force Survey, Household Consumption Expenditure Survey and Multiple Indicator Survey. The Data Catalogue section already includes over 2291 datasets along with specific metadata and visualization for each dataset for user convenience.


Macro Indicators Module: This module offers time series data of key macro indicators with features for filtering and visualising data enabling ease of access for the users.

The first phase of the module includes four major products of MoSPI: National Accounts Statistics, Consumer Price Index, Index of Industrial Production, and Annual Survey of Industries, encompassing the data of last ten years. The portal currently hosts more than 1.7 million records.
