Tools and support

Our tools

We offer several statistical tools to help you navigate our data sets and statistics. Two interactive tools - the Statistics Explorer and Statistics Warehouse - allow users to download data in different formats. The underlying data are the same for both. In addition, CSV files allow you to download each of our data sets. The files contain the same data as in our interactive tools.
