For the statistical work of the interior, right after the KMT government renamed "the Ministry of Internal Affairs" as "the Ministry of the Interior" in 1928, a bureau was established to take charge of the statistical work, originally it was the responsibility of the Department of General Affairs, the Ministry of Internal Affairs. In 1931, the government created an independent audit system and the Department of Audit was established on April 1st. To cope with the new system, the Ministry renamed the Bureau of Statistics as "the Department of Statistics" in 1935. In 1950, the Department of Accounting and the Department of Statistics were combined into the Department of Audit.  Three years later, in 1953, as the founding system was restored, the Department of Accounting and the Department of Statistics were separately established again.
