COVID-19: Statistics serving Europe
What information can I find here?
In this section, you can find a wide range of statistics and data published by Eurostat related to COVID-19. This can give you a baseline against which the impact of the crisis can be measured, provide the wider background or help you to see the evolution of the crisis.
The information covers a range of topics related to the economy, society and work, population and health as well as agriculture, energy, transport and tourism. For each topic, we show our latest releases, an interactive data visualisation, links to more in-depth information in Statistics Explained and a list of relevant datasets.
How does COVID-19 affect official European statistics?
The COVID-19 crisis is having a direct impact on the production of European statistics and at the same time is leading to an increased demand for Eurostat data. In the face of the crisis, Eurostat and the National Statistical Institutes of the European Statistical System are working hard to respond by continuing to publish relevant statistics of the highest quality as planned in the national and Eurostat release calendar.
The COVID-19 outbreak is also impacting on the ability of statistical authorities to collect and process data in the traditional manner. In the light of this, Eurostat is providing practical guidance for official statisticians on the issues triggered by COVID-19. The section 'Support to statisticians' brings together in one place all the new guidelines and methodological notes and will be regularly updated as new guidelines are developed.
