World Statistics Day

October 20 is World Statistics Day.

To mark the occasion, Eurostat published the 2020 edition of ‘Key figures in Europe – Statistical Illustrated’.

The 2020 edition includes a number of visuals coupled by concise texts, providing an insight into the situation and recent developments across the European Union within a number of fields.

The COVID-19 pandemic will leave a lasting impact on the way we live and work together. It came at a time when Europe had already been going through a period of profound demographical and societal changes.

The main long-term demographic changes in Europe are:

  • Longer life expectancy;
  • Lower birth rates;
  • Ageing societies;
