The article describes results of statistical research performed by Prussian Offices concerning Polish lands under Prussian rule, Poles in the Prussian census and urban statistics of cities of Wroclaw, Berlin and Poznan as well as Polish statisticians acting in Prussia and Polish scientific societies under Prussian partition dealing with economic research. The literature on the subject was also analysed and the usefulness of Prussian statistics in historical research (especially on demography and economic issues) in relation to the development of Polish lands under Prussian rule was evaluated.
