Despite our best efforts to ensure accessibility of the Eurostat website, we are aware of some limitations, which we are working to fix. Below is a description of known limitations. Please contact us if you encounter an issue not listed below.

  • Interactive maps: Interactive maps are not always accessible to blind users and users who rely on keyboard navigation.
  • Infographics / images: Some of the infographics or images on our website may still have no or insufficient text alternatives for people with a vision impairment.
  • Maps: Some content in the maps has no alternative for visually impaired visitors.
  • Interactive tools / visualisations: The interactive tools and visualisations on this site do not always have text alternatives. We are aware that this is inaccessible for people using the screen reader.

Preparation of this accessibility statement

This statement was prepared on November 22, 2022.

For the webpages of the site with the new design and layout, the statement is based on a review of a representative sample of web pages by an IAAP-qualified accessibility expert, using a combination of manual and automated testing.

For the sections not in the new design and layout, the statement is based on a review of a representative sample of web pages by independent Norwegian company in 2018. At that time, the website was found to be 84% compliant with the (WCAG) 2.0 standard.
