The tool “Inflation Statistics Illustrated” gives an overview of the price changes and weights of the main product groups included in the Harmonised Index of Consumer Prices (HICP) for the European Union and the euro area. The gradient of a rectangle indicates how much the prices have changed over a year. The rectangle's size is proportional to the share of the product group in the index.

Regional Statistics Illustrated

Regional Statistics Illustrated With this interactive tool, users can now visualise Eurostat's regional data. Regional Statistics Illustrated contains more than 50 indicators by NUTS 2 regions, grouped into 10 statistical domains.


Using the interactive map, individual regions can quickly be selected while different visualisation options allow to compare and analyse regional data in an user-friendly way. An animated timeline shows how regions have performed over time.

Regional Statistics Illustrated features the following visualisations:

  • Choropleth map
  • Distribution plot
  • Scatter plot
  • Bar chart
  • Data table

The tool accesses the latest available data in the Eurostat database so that the selected indicators always show the latest figures. For more information about the functionalities of the tool please see the help file.
