May 15, 2023 - We are renaming our "EXDAT – Experimental data" section to "EXSTAT – Experimental statistics". The main reason for this name change is to ensure consistency within Europe. Several national statistical institutes and Eurostat always refer to "experimental statistics". Furthermore, the term EXSTAT has a much broader scope and encompasses both innovative methods and novel data sources.

As always, we regularly publish new and innovative project results of the Federal Statistical Office in this section, now called EXSTAT. These results are obtained by using new data sources and methods. Both the degree of maturity and quality of the results differ from those of official statistics, especially regarding harmonisation, coverage and methodology. Nonetheless these results of the statistical offices of the Federation and the Länder offer new and interesting ways of looking at various statistical topics.
