EUROSTAT: How is the EU doing compared with the other major economies of the world?
Population, living conditions, health, education & training, labour market, economy & finance, trade, industry & services, research & communication, transport, agriculture, environment and energy: the 2015 edition of the Eurostat publication ‘The EU in the world’ compares the European Union with the 15 non-EU G20 countries across thirteen statistical fields using a range of European and international statistics. The G20 comprises the world’s major advanced and emerging economies. It includes the EU, four EU Member States (Germany, France, Italy and the United Kingdom) and 15 countries from the rest of the world (Argentina, Australia, Brazil, Canada, China, India, Indonesia, Japan, Mexico, Russia, Saudi Arabia, South Africa, South Korea, Turkey and the United States). Together the members of the G20 covered over 61% of the world’s land area, were home to 64% of the world population and generated 85% of the global GDP in 2013. A EUROSTAT press release can be found here.
