ESDS network

The ESDS Zurich is a service offered by the Statistical Office of the Canton of Zurich in cooperation with Eurostat, the Statistical Office of the European Union. The entire ESDS network counts 33 support offices in different European countries.

Eurostat offers a high-quality statistical information service for the EU by collecting and harmonising data from the national statistical offices of the EU and EFTA member states (Iceland, Liechtenstein, Norway, Switzerland). The resulting data record enables comparisons and an overview of the European Union as a whole, specific insights into the situation in individual countries and their regions as well as a comparison with states outside the EU.

Almost all the data on the Eurostat website are available free of charge. Edited data records and multidimensional database tables are part of it. The latter can be selected and edited with simple tools. The numerous publications by Eurostat are also available in digital form (PDF) free of charge.
