European Statistical Recovery Dashboard: January 2023 edition

January 17, 2023

Today, Eurostat released the January edition of the interactive European Statistical Recovery Dashboard.

The dashboard contains monthly and quarterly indicators from a number of statistical areas relevant to tracking the economic and social recovery from the COVID-19 pandemic, across countries and time.

January highlights: EU industrial production and economic sentiment rise, while production in services falls

EU industrial production and retail trade rebounded in November 2022, increasing further above their pre-pandemic levels, while production in services dropped in October for the first time in nine months, remaining however well above its pre-pandemic level.

EU inflation showed signs of a further fall across EU Member States in December 2022, due to a fall in energy prices. In this context, EU economic sentiment continued to improve in December, but remained well below its pre-pandemic level. The latest increase was driven by upturns in all surveyed sectors and, in particular, in retail trade, services and among consumers.

As regards the EU labour market and excess mortality, in November 2022 the unemployment rate remained stable below its pre-pandemic level, while the excess mortality rate decreased.

You can read the full analysis by clicking “Eurostat commentary” on the dashboard’s header. The dashboard is updated every month with the latest available data for each indicator.

The line charts in the dashboard offer many functionalities to easily explore and analyse the development of the indicators, such as displaying a longer time series, comparing several countries, downloading the customised chart or the source dataset.
