European Statistical System

Last update: 10.10.2019

The European Statistical System represents the partnership between the Community statistical authority of the EU, which is the European Commission (Eurostat), and the National Statistical Institutes (NSIs) and other national authorities responsible in each Member State for the development, production and dissemination of European statistics. This partnership also includes the European Economic Area (EEA) and the European Free Trade Association (EFTA) countries.

The Member States collect data and compile statistics for national and EU purpopes. The European Statistical System functions as a network in which Eurostat´s role is to define the methods of harmonization of statistics in close cooperation with the national statistical authorities. Harmonization has been extended to nearly all the statistical fields. Eurostat coordinates its cooperation with the National Statistical Offices within the European Statistical System and at European level with other Commission services, agencies, the European Central Bank, international organisations, such as the OECD, the UN, the International Monetary Fund and the World Bank.
