Publication “Basic figures on the EU” Spring 2012
The latest statistical data on the EU have been published by Eurostat. Eurostat publishes official, harmonised statistics on the European Union (EU) and the euro area which offer an objective portrayal of social and economic trends. These statistics are available for EU Member States, and are sometimes broken down by region. Furthermore, some of the indicators are published for candidate countries and other non-member countries.
Eurostat collects data from national statistical institutes; the statistics are harmonised according to Europe-wide methodologies. Data are, therefore, genuinely comparable across the whole of the EU.
Eurostat’s website: http://ec.europa.eu/eurostat provides free access to EU statistics, and is also available in German and French.
