The public debate over economic policy is rooted in data on economic conditions and trends. Too often, however, these data are either too obscure for most people to understand or too politicized for them to trust. The goal of EconoSTATS is to simplify and clarify economic debates by explaining the premises and evidence on which they are based.  
EconoSTATS is an educational resource empowering readers to analyse, interpret and think about these issues for themselves. To this end we draw in economists from various perspectives to engage on topics in ways that stimulate readers’ thinking.  We also examine and critique the ways the media reports on these topics.
