Eurostat’s visualisation tools
As an EU Member, Finland is involved in the compilation of the EU's statistics. Statistics Finland delivers statistical data to the Statistical Office of the European Union, Eurostat, which compiles joint statistics concerning all EU countries based on them and data supplied by statistical institutes of other EU countries.
Eurostat has built several data visualisation tools for its web service. From the comparison you can easily access the original data source in Eurostat's database.
Food Price Monitoring Tool
Food Price Monitoring Tool shows the price development along the various stages of the food-supply chain, i.e. from producers to consumers.
With the application you can easily compare changes in prices of food products in the EU Member States, Iceland, Norway, Switzerland and Turkey. It also shows how prices are transmitted from one stage of the food supply chain to the other.
To give an example: due to bad weather conditions in one year there is a poor harvest and consequently the price of vegetables sold by farmers increases by 10%. What can be the expected increase of the price of vegetables which are sold in the supermarket?
The application shows price indices and annual rates at four stages of the food supply chain: agriculture, food processing industry, retail sector and imports. The language can be selected from the top right.
The interactive data visualisation tool Economic indicators provides both basic and professional users a quick and easy overview of the development of eight main economic indicators.
After selecting an indicator and a country (or the EU / euro area aggregate), the trend of the indicator over the last 12 periods will be displayed in a graph. You can add the EU (28 countries) or euro area (19 countries) aggregate for comparison.
For some indicators, you have the possibility to swap between units. For example, for inflation you can choose between the "change compared to the same month of the previous year" and the "change compared to the previous month".
By clicking on the i button below the graph you can view the definition of the indicator. The More information button gives you access to the source dataset.
The life of women and men in Europe
The life of women and men in Europe is a digital publication that compares everyday life of women and men in Europe. Data can be compared between women and men by country and between European countries. The averages for women and men in Europe are also available.
The publication is divided into three topics: 1. Living, growing, ageing, 2. Learning, working, earning and 3. Eating, shopping, surfing, socialising. All three topics contain four sub-topics.
The content includes, e.g. short texts, interactive visualisation tools, infographics, and photos. The publication also contains a quiz where you can test your knowledge about the life of women and men in Europe.
Quality of life
Quality of life is a tool which provides you an insight into the different aspects of quality of life in your country. You can compare your data with fellow citizens in your country, as well as with the EU average or other EU Member States.
After choosing a country, you can select one dimension of quality of life. The tool presents two different indicators for each dimension. In most cases, one indicator offers information on the level of individuals, while the other indicator provides objective information on this dimension. You can retrieve further information by clicking on the i button next to each indicator's title.
By clicking on Data, you can access the source data. By clicking on Compare, you can compare your country with the EU Member State with the lowest and highest value, as well as with the EU average.
Young Europeans is a tool primarily designed for young people aged 16 to 29. By means of the tool, young people can compare themselves with other young people in their country or with Europeans of the same age. The tool also offers information on the young generation in Europe for parents, decision-makers, politicians and teachers, for example.
The tool consists of questions about the life of young Europeans on four different themes: me and my family, me and my work, me and my free time and studies, and me and the Internet. Start by choosing your gender, country and age. If you are not aged 16 to 29, you can choose an age on which you want to view information.
You in the EU
You in the EU is a tool intended for all European citizens. You can compare aspects of your way of living with people of your age in your country and also with the EU average and citizens of other EU Member States.
The You in the EU tool consists of questions about the life of Europeans: me and my life, me and my living conditions, and me and my work. The basis for comparison is the country, gender and age group data you selected at the start.
