Make Eurostat more user-centric

 

Eurostat is the statistical office of the European Union situated in Luxembourg. Its mission is to provide high quality statistics for Europe. Providing the European Union with statistics at European level that enable comparisons between countries and regions is a key task. In today's world, where we are confronted with fake news, the availability of reliable and objective statistics is an essential component of democratic societies.

In an effort to further improve its offer to its users, over the next year, Eurostat will be carrying out several user research activities to better understand users' needs. Eurostat is particularly interested in feedback from journalists who use the Eurostat website, whether regularly or occasionally.

The feedback will help guide the future development of the website, database and visualisation tools, which, in turn, will help you and your colleagues better find and interpret European statistics.

If you are interested in taking part, please go click here and fill out your details, so we can contact you.

The first research activity - interviews - will be planned in the coming months and can be done remotely (using video conferencing tools) or live if you happen to be in Belgium. Interviews will take around an hour.
