The EU in the World 2014

Source: Eurostat

From Press Release:

The G-20 comprises the world’s major advanced and emerging economies. It includes the EU, four EU Member States (Germany, France, Italy and the United Kingdom) and 15 countries from the rest of the world (Argentina, Australia, Brazil, Canada, China, India, Indonesia, Japan, Mexico, Russia, Saudi Arabia, South Africa, South Korea, Turkey and the United States). Together the members of the G-20 covered over 60% of the world’s land area, were home to 65% of the world population and generated 86% of the global GDP in 2012.

Eurostat, the statistical office of the European Union, releases today the latest edition of "The EU in the world", in which the EU and the 15 non-EU G-20 countries are compared across many statistical fields using a range of harmonised European and international statistics. For many indicators the total for the world is also included.
