The ESS report 2012

This first edition of the ESS Report provides information on the organisation and structure of the ESS and some of its key achievements and initiatives in 2012. It examines an increasingly important area of statistical production – the measurement of the well-being of EU citizens. Denmark and Cyprus summarise the main results of their European Council Presidencies, and the role and aims of the European Statistical Programme for the years 2013-2017 are explained. The final article deals with the plans to make the system even stronger for the future.
