Transport represents a crucial sector of the economy. The new 2022 'EU Transport in Figures' pocketbook provides an overview of the most recent and most pertinent annual transport-related statistics in Europe. It covers the European Union and its 27 Member States (EU-27) and, as far as possible, the current EU candidate countries, the EFTA countries and UK. As in the reference period (1990-2020), UK was part of the European Union, aggregates for EU-28 are presented whenever possible for the period when UK was an EU Member State.
The content of this pocketbook is based on a range of sources including Eurostat, international organisations and associations, national statistics and, where no data were available, own estimates. Own estimates have mainly been produced to get an idea of the EU total. At the level of individual countries they are merely indicative and should by no means be interpreted as official data.
The publication consists of three parts:
- a general part with general economic and other relevant data,
- a transport part covering both passenger and freight transport as well as other transport-related data, and, finally,
- an energy and environmental part with data on the impact which the transport sector has on energy use and the environment.
