|'The happiest people are those who keep
themselves to themselves'. This proverb does not apply to statistical offices.
If statistics are not known from citizens, the usefulness of statistical
institutes is in question. The aim of this presentation will be to show,
how the demand for statistical information coming from media, and behind
media from citizens, can be very fruitful for a statistical office. The
recent Eurostat story, confronted since 1997 with an increasing demand of
economic information on the euro-zone, is a good example of the major role
played by media in the reputation of a statistical office. The presentation
will be divided in three parts.
1. The euro-zone and its consequences on statistical needs
2. The Eurostat's reply to media needs
3. Relations with media: the 'snowball effect'
