Eurostat is the statistical agency for the European Union. The Library receives copies of most statistical publications either from the EU (check the Library Catalog) or as part of the Index to International Statistics (IIS) microfiche set. The best indexing and access to the contents of Eurostat publications is provided through the IIS (1983-, Reference and Government Publications fAI1.I49), and the web counterpart Proquest Statistical Insight. . Eurostat makes a good deal of statistical information available freely from its web site.
