Services to citizens in the EU in facts and figures

— filed under:

How many EU households have only mobile phones? For how long do they talk per day on their mobile phones? How many inhabitants are served by each post office in the Member States? How many Automatic Teller Machines (ATM) are there per inhabitant in the EU? How do Europeans prefer to pay for their purchases? - Answers to these questions and many more can be found in the publication "Consumers in Europe – facts and figures", jointly published by Eurostat, the Statistical Office of the European Communities and the General Directorate Health & Consumer Protection of the European Commission. This third edition of "Consumers in Europe" focuses on network industries providing services of general interest to the European consumers. These services are utilities such as transport, energy, water, electricity, telecommunications, internet, postal services and banking services, which play a fundamental role in the economic and social lives of citizens.
