Statistics on
animal research

Each year, the EU Commission produces data on the use of animals for scientific purposes in its Member States. As well as links to the data, EARA has also added some explanations of the different ways in which these statistics are analysed.

Below this is a table of animal research statistics for European countries and selected countries around the world. We have always tried to feature the most recent published data for each country. Simply click on the specific country to find out more, including in depth statistics and a fuller report.
