Eurostat offers a wide range of web tools to make it easier to visualise statistical results. Showing data at a regional and local level is often a challenge, as the information available is vast and difficult to condense. That is why we have developed a tool called 'Regions and cities illustrated' to help you have an overview of the situation in your region compared to other regions in the EU in 2018 and over time. The visualisation tool is based on a live data feed, so it is continually using the latest data. It contains maps, graphs and an animated timeline together with separate tabs for regions, cities and territorial typologies. The two main scoreboards are inter-connected, so when you select a geographical area in the map it is also highlighted in the graph. You can now also customise the tool to suit your needs. [+]
Statistical information is an important tool for understanding and quantifying the impact of political decisions in a specific territory or region. The Eurostat regional yearbook 2019 gives a detailed picture relating to a broad range of statistical topics across the regions of the EU Member States, as well as the regions of the EFTA and candidate countries.
Each chapter presents statistical information in maps, tables, figures and infographics, accompanied by a descriptive analysis highlighting the main findings. Regional indicators are presented for the following 12 subjects: EU policies for regions and cities, population, health, education and training, the labour market, the economy, structural business statistics, research and innovation, the digital economy and society, tourism, transport, and agriculture. In addition, two special chapters are included in this edition: a focus on European cities and a focus on regional socioeconomic developments after the global financial and economic crisis. [+]
National figures alone cannot reveal the full and sometimes complex picture of what is happening at a more detailed level within the European Union (EU). In this respect, statistical information at a subnational level is an important tool for highlighting specific regional and territorial aspects. It helps in analysing changing patterns and the impact that policy decisions can have on our daily life.
In order to provide a detailed picture of the diverse EU territories and to monitor EU regional policy targets, Eurostat has developed a range of statistics based on different classifications and typologies. These include data for: regions, cities and greater cities, metropolitan regions, rural areas and regions. Specific geographies such as coastal regions, mountain regions, border regions or island regions are also covered. [+]
This publication provides a detailed view on the territorial typologies at grid, local and regional (NUTS) level, used by Eurostat particularly for disseminating data aggregated by cities, coastal areas or border regions, for example. It helps data suppliers of subnational statistics to ensure coherency and comparability, and end-users to understand and interpret the wide range of official statistics available at a subnational level for the different areas and regions of the EU.

This document presents the current NUTS nomenclature, which subdivides the territory of the European Union into 104 regions at NUTS level 1, 281 at NUTS level 2 and 1 348 at NUTS level 3. The NUTS is the official division of the EU for regional statistics, visualised on maps. [+]

This video from Eurostat is presenting some new online tools for visualising data for regions and cities. Meet Åsa Önnerfors, who is explaining the difference between the Statistical Atlas and Regions and Cities Illustrated by showing some of the functionalities and options available in the two tools. She is also presenting a mobile phone app developed especially for regional data, called My region (Eurostat, 9.10.2018)
We are pleased to announce that there is now a single source for regionalised (NUTS2-level) payments from the EU budget. The new dataset is the most complete historic dataset so far, covering the years 1988-2016, 4 programme periods and the ERDF, EAFRD, Cohesion Fund and ESF (where relevant or available). The dataset it now publicly available in the ESIF Open Data platform.
The homepage for the date (metadata) provides links to graphs based on the data and further information on 1) Purpose, 2) Scope (Regionalisation/ Modelling of actual expenditure), 3) Coverage and 4) References (with links to the two methodological reports that explain the approach taken to regional and to model when the expenditure on the ground took place).

The 2017 edition of the Eurostat regional yearbook provides a taste of the wide range of regional statistics available for the 276 NUTS level 2 regions (or even 1 342 NUTS level 3 regions for some indicators) of the 28 Member States of the EU as well as, when available, in EFTA and candidate countries. The publication also presents regional data for specific sectors and economic activities: 'Digital economy and society', 'Tourism', 'Transport' and 'Agriculture'. You can see that the capital city regions of Copenhagen in Denmark and Stockholm in Sweden record the largest proportion of individuals participating in social networks. These chapters also reveal that that the regions of Centre and Bretagne, both in France, are the top EU regions for the production of cereals and the production of cows' milk respectively, while Cataluña in Spain records the highest number of pigs. You will also get, amongst others, facts and figures about tourism in coastal and non-coastal areas as well as a map on nine planned transport corridors in the Trans-European Transport Network (TEN-T).

This Methodological manual of city statistics aims to provide data suppliers with the necessary information to achieve coherence and comparability of the data collected, and to support users in understanding and interpreting the meaning of the data for their own purposes.
The core part of the Methodological Manual of City Statistics is the 'Glossary' chapter, where the individual variables and indicators are defined and described together with concrete examples. In addition to the 'Glossary', complementary information on the data quality and methodology as well as explanations on the spatial dimensions and coding system are given in order to guarantee a harmonised and comparable dataset.
