What is RSS?

RSS stands for Really Simple Syndication or Rich Site Summary, a text format, written in XML, which serves to distribute news headlines and content on the Internet in a completely automated fashion. It is a very effective and easy way of keeping up-to-date with the latest headlines from Eurostat. It allows you to identify the content you are interested in and have the very latest information on these topics delivered directly to you.

Rather than visit our site to see if new content has been added, RSS will alert you when new information has been added and will deliver it directly to you. By using this service you will receive a notice with the news headline at the same time as it is published on our website.

How do I start using RSS feeds?

You need to subscribe to a feed using an RSS feed reader, or aggregator, in addition to your browser. This will check, update and notify you when news arrives. There is a range of different news readers available and new versions are appearing all the time. Note that different news readers work on different operating systems, so you will need to take this into account when you make your choice. The mechanics of subscribing differ for each feed reader, but the one you choose will provide instructions.

Once you have downloaded and installed a reader, follow its instructions for adding EUROSTAT RSS as a new channel. Where you are prompted to enter a URL, please use the following:
