Established in 1953, Eurostat is the Statistical Office of the European Communities situated in Luxembourg. Eurostat's key role is to provide the European Union with a high-quality statistical information service that enables comparisons between countries and regions.
Eurostat's principal database is the New Cronos, a high quality macroeconomic and social statistics database organised into nine statistical themes; General Statistics, Economy and Finance, Population and Social Conditions, Industry, Trade and Services, Agriculture and Fisheries, External Trade, Transport, Environment and Energy, Science and Technology.
Access to the Eurostat database is currently via Eurostat's own data dissemination interface.
The UK Data Service has recently upgraded its data discovery and access systems. Read more about the changes to our new Data Catalogue and ‘My Account’ area.
