Czech Republic

Sources: United Nations Statistics Division and World Bank


The Czech Republic joined the EU in 2004 and has about 10.2 million inhabitants and an area of 79,000 km2. It can be considered as a middle-sized country. Despite that, the size of the economy is quite big and the GDP per capita is about world average. The same is true for the economic activity and unemployment rate.

The life expectancy is quite long with about 75.4 years. This may also be a result of the excellent low AIDS rate. On the other hand, the greenhouse gas emissions are very high. A school life expectancy of 15 years is more than the world average, but on the other hand, the tertiary education enrolment is not that high.
