Interactive & Visualised
To facilitate understanding of statistical data, we often use images, for example, in the form of charts. Here we have compiled something different from our "normal" charts. What you will find here is interactive charts and other visualised material which we think can introduce you to various themes of official statistics. On this page you will find the following.
- Population pyramids (age pyramids)
- Visualised material on price trends, traffic accidents, housing and short-term economic indicators
- Grid maps and atlases.
Here we present results of the 13th coordinated population projection through an animated age pyramid. You may choose between four alternative variants which are based on different assumptions. You can follow the development of the age structure over 110 years.
Age structure of the population by Land
In addition to federal results, data by Land are available on the basis of the 13th coordinated population projection. With this application you may, among other things, compare the developments in three Länder (only in German).
Video: consumer price index and inflation rate
Every month, the Federal Statistical Office publishes the current consumer price index. Our short video on YouTube explains how the index is compiled, how it is connected with the inflation rate and what the basket of goods and the weighting pattern really mean.
The inflation rate depends not only on how prices change. Another important factor is the weight with which the price trends of the individual product types are reflected in the consumer price index. The Price Kaleidoscope shows you the price trend and the weights of various product groups in the consumer price index.

The Business Cycle Monitor shows the development of selected indicators in a system of quadrants which cover the basic phases of the economic cycle. It provides an alternative to the usual charts where data relevant for the short-term economic development are shown on the time axis.
Our Traffic Accidents Calendar visualises the development of traffic accidents over the last ten years. The calendar charts show accident data on a daily basis, so that you can get an overview, for example, of the days when an especially large number of accidents occurred. You may also compare alcohol-related accidents with accidents involving personal injury over the whole year.
Our interactive chart "Housing in Germany" (only in German) provides information on the housing situation. It will show you, for example, where the proportion of new buildings is especially high, what the unoccupied dwellings rate is like and what the relation between average dwelling size and owner-occupier rate is.
Use our guided "tour of Germany" to learn what the map can do and to make your own analyses.
The statistical offices of the Federation and the Länder offer an interactive Regional Atlas (only in German) as a common product. Through thematic maps, the Regional Atlas shows over 80 indicators on a variety of themes of official statistics for all administrative districts and towns not attached to an administrative district.
The interactive Census Atlas (only in German) of the statistical offices of the Federation and the Länder presents the 2011 Census results on the basis of a 1-kilometre grid.
Atlas of Agricultural Statistics (5 or 10-km grid)
The online Atlas of Agricultural Statistics (only in German) contains a total of 16 maps on agriculture, focusing among other things on the number of agricultural holdings, their utilised agricultural area and their livestock. The statistical data basis is geo-referenced data from the census of agriculture 2010.
The statistical offices of the Federation and the Länder offer specific atlases on the following themes.
- Maritime transport statistics (only in German)
- Air transport statistics (only in German)
- Foreign trade statistics (only in German)
In each atlas, you can have different variables displayed for different reference years in one map.
