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.
