Statistics on the internet:
user-friendly, interactive, free of charge
The number of five million page views per month confirms that the internet portal
www.destatis.de of the Federal Statistical Office has become the main source of statistical information. By extending the range of online publications and interactive applications in 2009, user access was improved. As more and more theme pages and press releases are linked with the database GENESIS-Online and with the range of international data, users find more quickly what they are looking for. The number of accesses to GENESISOnline in 2009 (about one million) was twice that of 2008: Free tables, a new navigation and a WebService for registered customers had a positive impact on demand.
A new and innovative feature within the prices area is the price kaleidoscope, which is an interactive graphical application. The price development and the weighting of product groups in the consumer price index are visualised, so that the main origins of price increases or decreases are illustrated.
The inflation rate in January 2010 was 0.8%. The rate of price increase does not only depend on how the prices change. Another important factor is the weights with which the price trends of the individual types of goods are included in the overall index.
The size of each section represents the weight. The colour shows how the prices
within that category of goods have changed.

The STATmagazin, which is the Federal Statistical Office’s web magazine, has become
established as an element of the Office’s data supply. Short texts and charts that
are easy to understand, it provides information that is well-based in terms of statistics and deals with issues which are in the focus of public discussion. The trend in the number of free downloads from the publication service is positive: More than 100,000 free publications were downloaded every month in 2009 – with topics focusing most frequently on demographic change as well as producer and consumer prices.
Since May 2009, the Federal Statistical Office, together with the statistical offices of the Länder, has offered a new interactive regional atlas with over 80 indicators at www.destatis.de/onlineatlas. The visualisation of the statistics is based on data of all rural districts and towns not attached to an administrative district in Germany.
Regional differences – for example with regard to economic power, internal migration or employment – can be seen at a glance.
