Today, Eurostat, the statistical office of the European Union, has launched a new dashboard related to the COVID-19 crisis in the different EU member states. The European Statistical Recovery Dashboard is aimed at providing insight into developments in the individual member states and their expected recovery from the crisis.
The Dashboard contains monthly and quarterly indicators from a number of statistical areas, which are relevant for tracking the economic and social recovery from the COVID-19 pandemic. The Dashboard was developed in collaboration with statistical offices around the Union. Statistics Netherlands contributes the data for the Dashboard on behalf of the Netherlands.
Paolo Gentiloni, the European Commissioner for Economy, said the top priority for 2021 will be to successfully steer the European economy out of the unprecedented crisis caused by the COVID-19-pandemic.“To take the right decisions, we need to have objective and timely data at our disposal. That’s why today’s initiative from Eurostat and the other members of the European Statistical System is so important.”
The Dashboard features around 20 indicators which cover areas such as macroeconomic developments, business and trade, and the labour market. This is the first edition of the Dashboard. It will be updated every month with the latest available data and will be enriched with new indicators.
The Dashboard also features an interactive visual tool, linked to the Eurostat database. Each indicator can be explored by means of an interactive chart view. Comparisons between countries and across time are also possible. Data can be downloaded and re-used. Each edition features a commentary describing the economic and social situation in the latest available period.
The Dashboard can be found on the Eurostat website here.
