2018 saw the onset of unprecedented social activism in France. Indeed, countries in
Europe and the rest of the world are experiencing ever-more entrenched division across
society. As scepticism and mistrust take hold, statistical releases and analyses by
INSEE and the official statistics service become all the more critical to informing
key debates in this country.
In recent years, INSEE has completed a number of studies looking at the sub-national
divide, quality of life, the feeling of well-being among the public, as well as social
inequality and changes in household purchasing power.
This activity report demonstrates how INSEE is evolving and upgrading its publications
and releases to provide insight into the economic and social realities in France.
Discover in this report the main flagship actions carried out in 2018, including:
preparations for implementation of the single electoral register for the European
elections; the evolution of the census of population questionnaire to better take
into account the diversity of families; the dissemination of data from the Sirene
register via API; the new base year of national accounts, etc.
