The consequences of deregulation for economic statistics are discussed with a view to Europe 1992. In particular, the effects of the introduction of the Intrastat-system for statistics on international trade are investigated. It is argued that if the Statistical Offices of the EC-countries do no respond adequately, Europe 1992 will lead to a deterioration of economic statistics in several respects: they will become less reliable, less cost effective and less balanced.
