Statistics Sweden (Swedish: Statistiska centralbyrån, SCB) is the Swedish government agency that makes the official statistics for Sweden. National statistics in Sweden were first created in 1686 when the Church of Sweden was told to start keeping records on the population. Before the SBC, the Office of Tables (Tabellverket), was set up in 1749. The current name was changed in 1858.
