As these statistics have not reached full maturity in terms of harmonisation, coverage or methodology, they are always marked with a clearly visible logo and accompanied by detailed methodological notes. Explore the dedicated section and use the ‘Send us a message’ function (available in each sub-section) to give us your feedback on how to improve our experimental statistics. [+]
EU Member States are often compared with each other, but in reality it can be difficult to contrast small countries like Luxembourg or Malta with larger ones such as France or Germany. Analysing data at a regional level can highlight disparities either across the EU or within countries, such as an east-west divide in Germany or a north-south divide in Italy.
The digital publication Regions in Europe — statistics visualised offers a range of interactive visualisations accompanied by short texts that allow you to compare your region with other regions in Europe. The publication is divided into three principal sections: people and society, economic activities, the environment and natural resources. [+]
