Official statistics are published by dedicated national authorities and international organisations, providing policy-makers with reliable, up-to-date information to monitor economic, social and environmental policies.
Reliable statistics are also essential for businesses and researchers. They are therefore relevant to all of us.
The European Statistical System comprises Eurostat (a directorate-general of the European Commission) working in cooperation with statistical bodies in the Member States.
We are carrying out an audit to examine the Commission’s role in providing statistics for the EU and its Member States. Our audit will look at its strategy for producing high-quality statistics, the cooperation with the national statistical institutes, and its role in applying the quality framework for European statistics.
