Población inmigrante en la Encuesta Europea del Mercado Laboral y en el censo de la UE: una comparación basada en las cifras de 2011en Estadisticas
This paper provides an overview on the differences and similarities in the characteristics of intra-EU foreign-born populations according to the EU Census and EU Labour Force Survey for the same reference year, 2011. The objective of the analysis is to establish whether it is possible to update the more structural information in the EU Census with the more timely data available in the EU Labour Force Survey. The conclusion is that the current situation is not favourable to combining the two data sources as although data comparability is rather good at an aggregated level, this is much less the case when different breakdowns are analysed. Therefore, it is recommended that best practices on capturing, in a sample, the foreign-born population are shared among Member States so that the foreign-born population can be analysed by its multiple facets.

Desarrollo sostenible en la Unión Europea. Informe de seguimiento del progreso hacia los ODS en el contexto de la UE. Edición 2018en 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 second 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 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. [+]

Eurostat will start to publish euro area and European Union employment flash estimates based on early estimates provided by National Statistical institutes on a voluntary basis. This paper describes the reasons for advancing the employment estimates and elaborates the estimation method applied.

Since the start of the millennium, the European economy has evolved and statistics can help to better perceive these structural changes. This digital publication The European economy since the start of the millennium — a statistical portrait aims to show how main features of the economy of the European Union and its Member States have evolved since 2000 through a large range of statistical data giving both a micro- and a macro-economic perspective.
