10 Indicators of Sustainable Development in the European Union

Several days ago, I wrote about the 24 indicators of climate change in United States.
I happened to find a kind of its European equivalent, "10 indicators of sustainable development."
They are,
Main indicator: growth of GDP per capita
Main indicator: greenhouse gas emissions
Main indicator: consumption of renewables
Main indicator: energy consumption of transport relative to GDP
Main indicator: resource productivity
Main indicator: abundance of common birds
Main indicator: conservation of fish stocks
Main indicator: healthy life years
Main indicator: risk of poverty
Main indicator: employment rate of older workers
Main indicator: official development assistance

You can access each indicator's raw data by clicking on each theme or by visiting its website at
There is a summary of the indicators published last year, too. Its bibliographic information is,

Eurostat. (2009). Sustainable development in the European Union: 2009 monitoring report on the EU sustainable development strategy. Luxembourg: Office for Official Publications of the European Communities. [Full-text at]
