International and European Union Statistical Resources: Eurostat

The official statistical office of the European Communities.

Eurostat collects data from the statistical offices of EU member countries “and harmonises them according to a single methodology. The data thus obtained are genuinely comparable for the European Union as a whole” (from “Introduction to Eurostat” in the Eurostat Practical Mini-Guide, linked to below).

Access to data on this site is, in general, free; most statistical publications are available as PDF files.  Custom data sets are available from Eurostat for a fee. If you are a UIUC affiliate interested in this service, please contact Lynne Rudasill.
