Statistiks Bremen – ‘Giving politicians and planning-related decision makers the intelligence to make better decisions’

Background

The Statistical Office of the Free Hanseatic City of Bremen is responsible for providing the official statistics for the city of Bremen. Its main task is collecting data, processing, evaluation and publication of more than 200 statistics. The data relates to demographic, social, economical and ecological factors. According to Barbara Rosel who works in The Statistical Office, this data is vital for political and planning-related decision making.

“Data and information has to be processed and made available for local planning and administration agencies of the city. To secure local intelligence for the state of Bremen and beyond, we publish the data and information in different formats and offer different ways to access them,” says Barbara.

The Statistical Office decided that InstantAtlas would help it present data in an informative and visually compelling format. The team has created a number of reports using the data presentation software:

  • Bremer Ortsteilatlas (Bremen neighbourhood atlas). A data presentation of the different indicators at neighbourhood level of the city of Bremen
  • Bremer Wahlatlas (Bremen Election Atlas). A data presentation of the Federal Election results to the German Bundestag in the districts of the City of Bremen.

Meeting the need

The intelligence provided by the Statistical Office is used by various departments including the administration department, political and economic advisers plus members of the public.
