Federal Constitutional Court declares 2011 Census constitutional

On 19 September 2018 the Federal Constitutional Court delivered its judgment on the constitutionality of the 2011 Census Act and the related Sample Ordinance. The Court ruled that the Act is constitutional. The statistical offices of the Federation and the Länder will analyse the judgment thoroughly and continue with the preparatory work for the 2021 Census.

The 2011 Census was held in Germany to determine the official size of the population and obtain further detailed population, employment and housing stock data. The official size of the population in Germany provided by the 2011 Census is of great importance for the political sphere, administration and the business community. It serves as a basis for continuous population statistics, fiscal equalisation schemes among the Länder and among municipalities, and the delimitation of constituency boundaries, to mention but a few.

Brexit Monitor: Interactive charts on the UK and its pending exit from the European Union

In March 2017, following the Brexit referendum, the British Government formally initiated the process which will ultimately lead to the country's departure from the European Union. It is currently difficult to predict the precise consequences, but the Brexit decision and the departure from the EU is expected to impact on the economy, foreign trade, the labour market and migration. Our Brexit Monitor looks at the development in the United Kingdom using selected socio-economic indicators. Since the country is linked in a number of ways with the other EU states, the interactive charts also present the development in Germany and in the EU as a whole.
