Statista is a German online platform that specializes in data gathering and visualization. In addition to publicly available third-party data, Statista also provides exclusive data via the platform, which is collected through its team's surveys and analysis.

According to its own publications, Statista offers more than 1,000,000 statistics on over 80,000 topics from more than 22,500 sources in over 150 countries and is accessed 31 million times a month (as of December 2022). The company claims to cover around 170 industries with its content. In 2022, Statista reported more than 2 million registered users, with which the company generated around 140 million euros in revenue. Statista has been owned by Ströer Media since 2015, with an 81.3% stake.[citation needed]

The company provides statistics and survey results, which are presented in charts and tables. Its main target groups are business customers, lecturers, and researchers. The data provided by the company covers, among other things, advertisements, buying behavior, or specific industries.[2] In addition, the company offers reports on advertising, purchasing behavior, politics and society, and data on individual sectors of the economy and countries.

In 2020, Statista announced plans to offer subscriptions to a database of companies, thus entering into competition with Bloomberg L.P.[1] According to its own information, the portal's data partners include the Federal Statistical Office, the Allensbach Institute for Public Opinion Research, the OECD and the German Institute for Economic Research. Other partners include the Financial Times and Fortune.[citation needed]

In 2010, the initiative "Deutschland – Land der Ideen" ("Germany – Land of Ideas") selected Statista as one of the winners in the category "Landmarks in the Land of Ideas 2010"[3] and awarded the "European Red Herring Prize".[4][non-primary source needed]
