Eurostat publication looks at the European economy since 2000

Eurostat, the European statistical office, has released a new digital publication on "The European economy since the start of the millennium – a statistical portrait". The publication was issued on 21 June 2018 and aims to show in an easy and interactive way statistics on the EU’s economy, its households, businesses and governments from the year 2000 until today.

The publication illustrates a large range of statistical data. It includes brief descriptions of the main findings, completed with interactive visualisations which allow country comparisons to be made. The publication is divided into four parts focusing on specific areas:

  • The whole economy: This section includes the long-term macro-economic trends for GDP, investment and consumption, trade, inflation, unemployment, employment, and working patterns.
  • Households: This section contains data on household income and spending. It also contains information about the evolution of the housing market.
  • Businesses: This section looks at the structure of enterprises in the economy. It also shows their level of investment, debt and profitability, with a separate section dedicated to the banking sector.
  • Government: The last part presents the government expenditure and revenue, public deficit and debt. It also shows the place of the government sector in the economy in terms of employment.

The publication covers the EU and its Member States, and the EFTA countries where available.
