Do you use statistics when you teach? Or are you a student wanting to understand more about statistics? Then the Education corner is the right place for you!

The Education corner provides tools and explanations which make statistics easier to grasp.

The Education corner can be used by teachers looking for material to be used in the classroom when teaching statistics, geography, social science, etc. It can also be used directly by students for an easier understanding of statistics.

Our tools are either produced by Eurostat or are created and translated by the National Statistical Offices.
