EUROPE

statistics

Here you can find some statistical data concerning the general situation of each country of this continent.
In addition to comprehensive information on the demographical development of each whole country, these data are also given for their administrative divisions and for their important cities.

Note: For practical reasons the compiler of the site regards the Russian Federation to belong to Europe, although its greater eastern part extends into Asia.
The countries in the Caucasus region are therefore also recognized to be a part of Europe.
Turkey and Cyprus will be considered as countries in Asia.
Greenland, however, is seen as a part of North America.
While the borders of the countries in Central and Eastern Europe are historically seen far from quiet, it is sometimes necessary to make an extra file of a country that exists no more at the present time.
