From changing travel habits and reducing our environmental footprint to youth employment trends and the growing interest in local food supply – our world does not stand still and our society is constantly changing in response to global events.

But do the changes we experience or initiate at our personal level also show on a bigger scale, across European society? Do the statistics and data confirm what we see in our daily lives?

The podcast series 'Stats in a wrap' looks at the world through the eyes of statistics. Its aim is to pick the most delicious morsels and striking flavours to provide insights into the unexpected, the quirky and downright peculiar perspectives that only the numbers can reveal.
