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. [+]
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 2018 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: regional policies and European Commission priorities, 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 typologies. [pdf] [on line]
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.

Key figures on Europe presents a selection of topical data. Most data cover the European Union and its Member States, while some indicators are provided for other countries, such as members of EFTA, enlargement countries to the European Union. This publication may be viewed as an introduction to European statistics and provides a starting point for those who wish to explore the wide range of data that is freely on Eurostat’s website. [+]
This report highlights how the unique characteristics of European cities can support the EU priorities of jobs & growth, migration and climate action. Cities boost innovation, embrace people from different backgrounds and reduce our impact on the planet. Cities that operate at the metropolitan scale and have sufficient autonomy and resources can better exploit these urban advantages.
As cities have important investment needs, EU Cohesion Policy will provide more than EUR 100 billion for projects on innovation in SMEs, social integration, low-carbon mobility and energy efficiency in the period 2014-2020. To help cities learn from each other, the report compares the performance of cities and provides examples of policies that have worked.
This report was prepared to support the Urban Agenda for the EU and the new global Urban Agenda adopted. It was jointly produced by the Directorate-General for Regional and Urban Policy of the European Commission and UN-Habitat. [+]
In addition, the new Urban Data Platform, hosted on the Knowledge Centre for Territorial Policies operated by the Joint Research Centre, provides a single access point to common indicators on the status and trends in over 800 European urban areas – on demography, economic development or access to services, for example. This database will enable urban authorities and stakeholders to compare data, benchmark and monitor, which is one of the aims of the Urban Agenda. [+]
