About this activity

Eurostat is the statistical office of the European Union situated in Luxembourg. Its task is to provide the European Union with statistics at European level that enable comparisons between countries and regions. It offers a whole range of important and interesting data that governments, businesses, the education sector, journalists and the public can use for their work and daily life.

International statistics are a way of getting to know your neighbours in Member States and countries outside the EU.
They are an important, objective and down-to-earth way of measuring how we all live.
Democratic societies do not function properly without a solid basis of reliable and objective statistics. On one hand, decision-makers at EU level, in Member States, in local government and in business need statistics to make those decisions. On the other hand, the public and media need statistics for an accurate picture of contemporary society.  Of course, national statistics are still important for national purposes in Member States whereas EU statistics are essential for decisions and evaluation at European level.
