In May 2005, The Agency of Statistics of the Republic of Kazakhstan opened the domain.

Evolving since the first official statistical body was created in 1920, the then-current Agency of Statistics had three main objectives:

  1. Formatting/standardizing statistical methodology for Kazakhstan;
  2. Implementing these methodologies within the parameters of the state-statistics principles;
  3. Providing statistical data and summaries for the Kazakh citizens, its government, and any international bodies seeking data on the Republic of Kazakhstan.

The functions of the Agency varied from oversight of data to ethical and privacy policing of official government data to implementation of research to gather data to providing reports to official bodies as well as the public on findings through data sets.

The Timeline of Socioeconomic Development in Kazakhstan enabled users to see a quick, pointed history of how data shows socioeconomic trends through time.

Classifications included the different classes associated with the statistical data used and researched by the Agency. For transparency and consideration, the Agency produced their methodology to ensure bias was as removed from data reporting as much as possible.

The 2009 Population Census featured statistical information on the census for the Republic of Kazakhstan from 2009. The 2006-2007 Agricultural Census provided insights into the agriculture of Kazakhstan.

The Questions and Answers section was a page dedicated to answering the most frequently asked questions by the public as well as more unique questions pertaining to official statistical data in Kazakhstan.
