14 September 2015 - An astronomical increase in migrants into Europe is straining the region's social and security resources and elevating political tensions within the EU as well as between the EU and former Soviet States. Today the Justice and Home Affairs Council of the European Council will meet in Brussels to discuss current measures and new proposals to address the migration crisis.

Today's Viz of the Day story captures in a few stark graphics some of the contours of this crisis, including the nationalities of the migrants - majority Syrian - the migrant demographic - 15 percent are children - and rankings, by country, of asylum applicants. The data, of course, does not capture the number of migrants trapped in the gray space of camps, train station platforms, and worse, the very issues that will be at the center of proposal in today's special meeting of the Justice and Home Affairs Council.

The data reveal thought-provoking trends from the perspective of purchasing patterns of lowest to highest emission cars and the corresponding potential contribution of each make and model to air pollution.Premium-class sport cars are the ‘dirtiest’ based on CO2 emissions, with Bugatti vehicles—each emitting more than half a kilogram of CO2 per kilometer (km)—at the top. Yet, the potential...

European natural gas imports

The largest natural gas importing countries are Germany (which represent about 1/4 of overall EU imports), Italy, UK, France and Spain. The security of the EU’s natural gas supplies threatened by a high proportion of imports concentrated among relatively few partners. More than three quarters of the EU-28’s imports from outside of European Union comes from Russia, Norway and Algeria. Despite the gradual reduction of natural gas imports from Russia over the last two decades, Russia still remains the largest source of EU natural gas imports. For...

Working Life Expectancy in Europe

While unemployment rate as well as other standard indicators of economic activity focus on specific stages of person's life cycle, duration of working life indicator (DWL) or, in other words, working life expectancy, captures the entire life cycle of active and employed population. Created with the purpose of monitoring progress made under the Europe 2020 employment strategy, this indicator shows the number of years a person aged 15 years is expected to be economically active in the labor market along his or her life. Thus, Iceland is the leader among European countries in the duration of working life: here people are expected to spend 44...
