Abstract

Background. The article is devoted to questions of formation, organizational and structural design of statistical activities in Orenburg province. The relevance of this topic is caused by insufficient studies at the regional level. The purpose of the article is to determine the importance of reforms in 1830s–1850s for the organization of the statistical service of the region.
Materials and methods. The author used unpublished sources from TSIA RB funds, GAOO and published documentary materials of the Statistical Committee of the region. The methodological basis of the work included the principles of histo-ricism and scientific objectivity.
Results. The article examines the reasons that caused the need for further reforms of the statistical service of the Interior Ministry in the center and regions. The author notes that reforms of 1830s–1850s contributed to improving the system of official statistics. As a result of this department’s activity, a large amount of work was carried out, the number of economic-statistical publications increased, the public interest in statistics was revived.
Conclusions. The author concludes that a great share of success of the statistics agencies was caused by operative management of the Ministry of Internal Affairs. This agency established a clear management structure and involved well-known scientists. Quite important was the role of military officers and civil governors, who regulates activities of the statistical service.
