With the aim of establishing good practices for statistical matching methods for official migration statistics, and encouraging migration researchers to create and use synthetic data, this paper reports on the methodological details of a statistical matching experiment that combines the International Migration and the Subjective Well-being complementary data sets of Hungarian Microcensus 2016. In the experiment, eight variants of non-parametric hot deck methods were performed and evaluated both from a methodological and an analytical point of view. [+]
The present fifth edition of the Glossary is the result of the valuable cooperation between Eurostat, UNECE and ITF (International Transport Forum) which put an effort into harmonising transport statistics at European and international level.
The Glossary comprises 744 definitions and represents a point of reference for all those involved in transport statistics. In this edition, the rail, road, inland waterways, maritime, air and intermodal freight transport chapters have been substantially revised. A new chapter on energy consumption has been added and a new accident section has been annexed to the maritime transport chapter.
The Glossary has been translated into all the official languages of the European Union. The use of illustrations aims to provide a better understanding of the definitions, on the basis that one picture is worth a thousand words. [+]
Eurostatistics — Data for short-term economic analysis — shows the evolution of the economic activity in the European Union, euro area and Member States. This monthly review gives a synthetic picture of the macroeconomic situation in the recent past. It is based on Principal European Economic Indicators (PEEIs), complemented by some business cycle indicators. [+]
Luz sobre el sector energético europeo. Un recorrido guiado por las estadísticas de energía. Edición 2019en Estadisticas
Energy is essential for our day-to-day life. Turning on our computers or starting our cars are actions that we take for granted, yet they represent the final stage of a complex process, from extraction to final consumption. Statistics can help to make the complex process of energy more understandable. This is the aim of the digital publication Shedding light on energy in the EU – A guided tour of energy statistics. This new type of publication aims to answer questions on energy most frequently asked by citizens in an original way. Answers are provided through short texts, dynamic infographics, maps, videos, graphs, photos etc. This digital publication provides the statistical background which helps to better understand the challenges faced by the Energy Union. Both those not so familiar with the energy sector and experts in the domain should find something of interest. [+]
People in today’s Europe are on the move much more than ever before. This mobility can be viewed from many angles, as there are many reasons for moving: migration, education, work or tourism… This digital publication People on the move — Statistics on mobility in Europe shows the latest figures on these movements of people in Europe in many different ways, with a focus on people and not on goods.
Throughout the publication, brief descriptions of the main findings are completed with interactive visualisations, where you can compare your country with other countries. This publication is aimed at those who would like to have an overview of migration trends, working and studying abroad, transport and tourism in the EU in an easy and interactive way. [+]
Reconciliación de las estadísticas de la UE sobre ingresos y condiciones de vida (EU-SILC) con las cuentas nacionalesen Estadisticas
The coherence of household survey data with national accounts has been studied extensively in recent years, following the “Beyond GDP” initiatives. This paper compares income aggregates in EU-SILC and national accounts, adjusts for the main conceptual differences, and discusses factors that could influence the observed discrepancies. Following a proposal by Atkinson, Guio and Marlier (2017), sensitivity of key social indicators to the micro/macro-discrepancies is then examined by adjusting the micro data totals to match the reconciled macro aggregates. Three adjustment methods are tested (simple proportional scaling, calibration to margins, Pareto imputation), and their impact on the measures of income inequality and at risk of poverty compared. In line with other studies, the micro/macro gaps are found to vary significantly across countries, and are more substantial in property and self-employment income compared to wages and salaries and transfers received. The observed gaps are likely to be mostly due to measurement errors and conceptual differences. Adjusting the micro data with the gaps results in significant increases in inequality and median income levels, but more subdued changes in at risk of poverty rates. The results are sensitive to the adjustment methods as well as proper assessment of the micro/macro gaps. Caution is warranted if distributional indicators are computed from macro-adjusted micro data. [+]
Desarrollo sostenible en la Unión Europea. Informe de seguimiento sobre el progreso hacia los ODS en el contexto de la UE. Edición 2019en Estadisticas
Sustainable development is firmly anchored in the European Treaties and has been at the heart of European policy for a long time. The 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development and its 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), adopted by the UN General Assembly in September 2015, have given a new impetus to global efforts for achieving sustainable development. The EU is fully committed to playing an active role to maximise progress towards the Sustainable Development Goals. This publication is the third of Eurostat’s regular reports monitoring progress towards the SDGs in an EU context. The analysis in this publication builds on the EU SDG indicator set, developed in cooperation with a large number of stakeholders. The indicator set comprises around 100 indicators and is structured along the 17 SDGs. For each SDG, it focuses on aspects which are relevant from an EU perspective. The monitoring report provides a statistical presentation of trends relating to the SDGs in the EU over the past five years (‘short-term’) and, when sufficient data are available, over the past 15 years (‘long-term’). The indicator trends are described on the basis of a set of specific quantitative rules. [+]
The quarterly series 'Basic figures on the EU' presents the freshest Eurostat data on a small number of key indicators in the economic, social and environmental fields. In an effort to give readers a better overview of the data available in the Eurostat database, each edition of Basic figures on the EU introduces a set of three alternating indicators. The same content is available in a compact printed leaflet. [+]
The document provides a general overview of methods that are used in Member States for compiling employment flash estimates at 30 or 45 days after the quarter-end. It guides the compiler in the estimation process by following a step-by-step approach. The document discusses available source data, estimation procedures, model strategies, methods for forecasting missing data and the analysis of results. Description of countries’ methodologies, links to available software and references to literature are included as well. [+]
