EEA core set of indicators Guide

The EEA management board approved the core set of indicators in March 2004. The set has been established for three main purposes: to provide a manageable and stable basis for indicator-based reporting by the EEA; to prioritise improvements in the quality and geographical coverage of data flows, especially Eionet priority data flows; and, to streamline EEA/Eionet’s contributions to other European and global indicator initiatives, for example, EU structural indicators, EU sustainable development indicators and OECD environment indicators.

This guide provides information on the quality of the 37 indicators in the EEA core set. Its primary role is to support improved implementation of the core set in the EEA, European topic centres and the European environment information and observation network (Eionet). In parallel, it is aimed at helping users outside the EEA/Eionet system make best use of the indicators in their own work. It is hoped that the guide will promote cooperation on improving indicator methodologies and data quality as part of the wider process to streamline and improve environmental reporting in the European Union and beyond.
