In August 1940, after the occupation of Latvia, Director of the State Statistical Bureau M.Skujenieks was arrested by the Cheka. Last statistical “Monthly bulletin” was published in July 1940, yet it was without usual Prime Minister K.Ulmanis’ introductory words on the first page.
Available statistical data on the occupied eastern regions – the Baltic States, Belarus and eastern part of Poland – were compiled in publication „Structural Report on the Ostland” („Strukturbericht über das Ostland”) which consisted of two parts „Ostland in Zahlen” and „Ostland Atlas”. Both these parts were restricted information used only for administrative purposes. Producer of these statistical collections was Reichkommissar fur das Ostland, but statistical data for these publications were compiled by Jekabs Jurevics – former head of Domestic Trade Statistics Section of the State Statistical Bureau.
