Europe 2020 Strategy – towards a smarter, greener and more inclusive EU economy? - Issue number 39/2012
The publication presents the latest available data on Europe 2020 headline indicators, taking into account the role of Eurostat to ensure the statistical support for the strategy and to produce relevant data that meet high quality standards. To monitor the progress towards Europe 2020 strategy objectives, a set of eight main indicators and three sub-indicators has been developed. The strategy sets the union targets, to be achieved by 2020, while Member States commit their national targets in the National Reform Programmes. The publication presents data on EU-27 aggregates, individual Member States and where available on the EFTA and the candidate countries, US and Japan.
