Stats Monitor

Stats Monitor is a unique service that gives you newsleads based on data from Eurostat, signaling interesting trends, changes and outliers. With Stats Monitor you are also able to visualize your stories and embed charts directly on your own website. The goal is to make it easy to do journalism with data.

Stats Monitor is powered by the news services Newsworthy , developed by J++ in Stockholm, and LocalFocus , based in Amsterdam. A beta version of the service is available since November 2017; during 2018 we will gradually add new datasets to it.

You can use Statsmonitor in two ways:
