What are experimental statistics?

This new section intends to better respond to users' needs through innovation in statistical production. The section covers ongoing projects that are in some way innovative, whether through their information sources, statistical methods, study scope or way of disseminating the results.

The presented contents are considered to be experimental because they have not yet reached sufficient maturity in terms of the reliability, stability or quality of data, as to be included in official statistics. However, the available results are offered to users for their use and evaluation due to the relevance that these may have and as a means to improve the products themselves by seeking the views of the information's final recipients.

The dissemination of experimental statistics is part of the European Statistical System (ESS) strategy, with cooperation from different national statistical offices as well as Eurostat.
