Eurostat: Official EU statistical data


Data description

EurostatThe Eurostat Dissemination Database provides official statistics on the European Union, EU member states and sub-state regions via the Eurostat Data Browser. There are nine primary categories:

  • General and regional statistics
  • Economy and finance
  • Population and social conditions
  • Industry, trade and services
  • Agriculture and fisheries
  • External trade
  • Transport
  • Environment and energy
  • Science and technology.

The Data Browser Guide is on this Eurostat page with sections on customising data selections; generating time series; managing tables, line charts and bar charts; and customising data visualisations. The Guide is available in English, French and German.

(From November 2022 the Data Explorer will be phased out. Eurostat explains how to convert Data Explorer bookmarks to new Data Browser bookmarks on this page.)

Bulk downloading instructions are on this page (item #6).

The Eurostat Regional Yearbook and the ARDECO database provide EU sub-state regional data.


Time period

The Eurostat Dissemination Database provides six decades of statistical observations, varying by series and accession dates of European Union member states.
