In Europe, national statistical organisations and Eurostat, the statistical office of the European Union, produce and disseminate official statistics. These organisations come together as partners in the European Statistical System (ESS). This paper describes the ESS, the challenges it faces and the modernisation efforts that have been undertaken based on a redesigned ESS enterprise architecture. It also outlines the probable future direction of the ESS.
