Google Ties Into EU’s Statistical Office

There’s good news this morning for individuals with an interest in world events.  Google’s made it possible to search for World Bank Development Indicators in more languages, and integrated data from Eurostat for the first time ever.

A little background info: Eurostat, the statistical office of the European Union, was created in 1953.  It collects information about all sorts of things, including unemployment rates, government debt, and broadband penetration, and makes the data available for free through a list of links on its site.
