The constribution to this volume represent the revised papers of a workshop of "Social Statistics and Social Reporting in and for Europe". Scholars from very different institutional contexts were brought together to gain an overview of current structures, activities and approaches in social data production at the international (OECD, EU) as well as the national level.

The eleven papers deal with various aspects of EU data such as

  • EU social statistics / social protection statistics / health statistics
  • Interrelations of German and EU social statistics
  • The EUROBAROMETER programme of the European Commission and the activities of the Centre of European Surveys and Studies (ZEUS)
  • Research and data holdings of the OECD in the social data field
  • Organisation and results of the International Social Survey Programme
  • National and international approaches in social reporting in the whole of Europe as well as in Germany

The spectrum and quality of the constribution have made it possible to produce a comprehensive book on social reporting and social statistics in Europe which will be useful to all social scientists working in this field.
