Abstract: In a globalized world, in situations of catastrophes, disasters and extraordinary phenomena and processes at the national, local and sectoral level, official statistics should realize new tasks – active information support of governments, businesses, population and international organizations in concrete situations. Those new tasks are of special importance in fragile states, countries, regions and sectors of national economies. The paper proposes statistical typologies of extremal social and economic and environmental situations, phenomena and processes. Official statistics should develop statistical categories and variables for describing and measuring those phenomena and processes and should monitor all types of social, economic and environmental extremities.
Keywords: Official statistics, fragile countries, information security
