2019 in numbers

A Statista DossierPlus on major events shaping 2019

2019 in numbers Based on an analysis of newscasts and online search trends, this DossierPlus summarizes 2019 by capturing major trends and events with global impacts. The topics identified were grouped into three main categories, namely politics, economy, and casualties.

First, the year-end review takes a look at political milestones of the year. Numerous indicators, such as the results of the European parliamentary elections or U.S. partisan antipathy polls, pointed to increased polarization in global politics. In some countries, including Hong Kong and many Latin American countries, tensions even lead to political unrest and long-lasting protests. Additionally, the analysis shows how international relations were also characterized by power demonstrations and disputes.

Second, this study examines how the economy developed throughout the year. Both the slowdown in economic growth and the political circumstances had an impact on the global economy. Nonetheless, success stories and noteworthy moments are also included as the DossierPlus examines individual companies.

Ultimately, man-made and natural tragedies with long-lasting effects make up the final chapter of the review. This includes cultural losses, such as the Notre-Dame fire, environmental erosion, as well as tragedies demanding human lives, like major epidemics.
