Demographic statistics are among the most popular data Eurostat produces, and they are important for almost every area of policy.
This publication shows what official European statistics can tell us about how the population is developing, ageing, and much more. It provides possibilities to investigate EU and country level data and compare trends over several years.
Demography of Europe is an interactive publication released by Eurostat, the statistical office of the European Union.
‘The data presented in this publication will help us analyse the reasons behind the multi-faceted demographic trends across the European Union, because not every Member State is affected in the same way. This publication is another key building block for our demography portfolio, it confirms demography as a catalyst for the development and the success of our policies.’Dubravka Šuica, European Commission Vice-President for Democracy and Demography
‘Demographic change in the European Union is a key policy topic for this Commission. The pandemic has reiterated how important it is that our policies resonate with people and protect them. What distinguishes this new Eurostat publication is its simple and interactive way of bringing information about European demography to our citizens.’ Paolo Gentiloni, European Commissioner for Economy
