Eurostat offers a wide range of web tools to make it easier to visualise statistical results. Showing data at a regional and local level is often a challenge, as the information available is vast and difficult to condense. That is why we have developed a tool called 'Regions and cities illustrated' to help you have an overview of the situation in your region compared to other regions in the EU in 2018 and over time. The visualisation tool is based on a live data feed, so it is continually using the latest data. It contains maps, graphs and an animated timeline together with separate tabs for regions, cities and territorial typologies. The two main scoreboards are inter-connected, so when you select a geographical area in the map it is also highlighted in the graph. You can now also customise the tool to suit your needs. [+]
Manual on sources and methods for the compilation of COFOG statistics - Classification of the Functions of Government (COFOG) — 2019 edition
This manual has been developed and agreed by the Task Force on COFOG in response to an increasing interest in high quality, comparable statistics on government expenditure broken down by purpose, according to the Classification of the Functions of Government (COFOG). It is its third edition. The manual covers user requirements, the analytical framework, methodological guidance, links with other international statistics, and countries' compilation practices. In comparison to previous editions, the manual was completely updated, most importantly to reflect the ESA 2010 (European System of Accounts) framework. Further guidance is given by the addition general guidance on the recording of consumption of fixed capital on own-account research and development (R&D) and correspondences among the COFOG classification and economic transactions used in the ESA 2010 framework as well as of sixteen new case studies.

Official economic statistics are uncertain even if not always interpreted or treated as such. From a historical perspective, this paper reviews different categorisations of data uncertainty, specifically the traditional typology that distinguishes sampling from nonsampling errors and a newer typology of Manski (2015, Journal of Economic Literature). Throughout the importance of measuring and communicating these uncertainties is emphasised, as hard as it can prove to measure especially some sources of data uncertainty relevant for administrative and big datasets. Accordingly, this paper both seeks to encourage further work into the measurement and communication of data uncertainty in general and introduce the COMUNIKOS project at Eurostat. COMUNIKOS is designed to evaluate alternative ways of measuring and communicating data uncertainty specifically in contexts relevant for official economic statistics. [+]

National figures alone cannot reveal the full and sometimes complex picture of what is happening at a more detailed level within the European Union (EU). In this respect, statistical information at a subnational level is an important tool for highlighting specific regional and territorial aspects. It helps in analysing changing patterns and the impact that policy decisions can have on our daily life.
In order to provide a detailed picture of the diverse EU territories and to monitor EU regional policy targets, Eurostat has developed a range of statistics based on different classifications and typologies. These include data for: regions, cities and greater cities, metropolitan regions, rural areas and regions. Specific geographies such as coastal regions, mountain regions, border regions or island regions are also covered. [+]

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. [+]
This handbook of geospatial statistics — based on a point-based statistical information system — aims at promoting, developing and consolidating the use of specific statistical methods available to NSIs. The handbook has been compiled by INSEE with funding from EUROSTAT. It starts off by describing geolocalised data, measuring the importance of spatial effects as well as taking the spatial effects into account, while closing with advanced techniques for graph portioning and confidentiality. It is expected that the practical examples and their implementation in R will make the statistical production process more efficient. [+]
In official statistics there is an increasing demand for indicators at a higher frequency than have traditionally been observed. Eurostat and the European Statistical System (ESS) developed these guidelines to help data producers derive high frequency data (e.g. quarterly or monthly) from low frequency data (e.g. annual) and to address related temporal and accounting constraints. These guidelines are aimed at those involved in the production and analysis of infra-annual European statistics (compiled by Eurostat) and corresponding country specific official statistics compiled by National Statistical Institutes (NSIs). They have been conceived both for experts and beginners. In order to rank the different methods, each issue is discussed following a structure with three parts: a description (free text presenting the problem), a list of options (various possibilities to deal with the specific issue) and a list of ranked alternatives (A,B,C). Namely: [+]
The Statistical requirements compendium, published by Eurostat, serves as a reference document for the EU acquis in statistics. It summarises the key reference information for European statistical production, taking into account new legislation and other developments relevant for European statistics.
The Compendium also serves as the framework for conducting compliance monitoring of the enlargement countries in the area of statistics. The 2018 edition of the Compendium follows an adapted version of the Classification of Statistical Activities (CSA) Rev. 1 2009. [+]
