Before the Second World War (October 1923-August 1939) and in the post-war years (August 1945-November 1951), Statistics Poland also published a periodical entitled “Wiadomości Statystyczne” (“Statistical News”), however, of a different nature – it provided numerical information about the state and socio-economic development of the country; therefore, it should not be identified with the currently published journal.
Since 2007, the “Wiadomości Statystyczne. The Polish Statistician” has been included on the list of Polish evaluated scientific journals of the Ministry of Science and Higher Education. According to the announcement of the Ministry of Science and Higher Education of 18 December 2015 on the list of scientific journals together with the number of points awarded for publication in these journals, the “WS” received 12 points.
