The National Institute of Statistics and Censuses (INDEC) is a decentralized public body that operates within the Ministry of Economy of the Nation, which exercises the direction of all official statistical activities carried out in the Argentine Republic.

In February 2013, the International Monetary Fund censured Argentina for failing to report accurate inflation data.

Political intervention in the INDEC figures ended, and the IMF declared in November 2016 that Argentine statistics were again in accordance with international standards.[1]
