Mathematics, Analyses and Statistics Domain

The Mathematics, Analyses and Statistics Domain (MAS) draws up decision-making bases for the management, supervision and further development of social security. To this end, it compiles statistical data and calculation bases, develops forecasting models and scenarios and launches and supports research and evaluation projects. MAS also provides the necessary mathematical and statistical bases for reform projects and calculates the financial implications of the proposals.
