The life of women and men in Europe: a statistical portrait

Last update on 18-10-2017
Statistics can help to better understand the diversity and characteristics of the life of Europeans, by highlighting similarities and disparities between women and men.

This is precisely the aim of the brand new digital publication - The life of women and men in Europe – a statistical portrait -, issued today by Eurostat in collaboration with the National Statistical Institutes of the EU Member States and the EFTA countries.

This digital publication presents easily understandable statistics through graphs, short texts and interactive visualisation tools organized in 3 chapters:

  • Living, growing, ageing…
  • Learning, working, earning…
  • Eating, shopping, surfing, socialising…

Readers are invited to answer a quiz and test their knowledge.

The publication is released on the occasion of the European Statistics Day taking place each year on 20 October.

This publication can be accessed on the INE Portal.
