(09 October 2013) – Eurostat recently published the Regional yearbook 2013 and recently launched a new interactive tool, Regional Statistics Illustrated, to visualise regional data.
The Regional yearbook 2013 presents regional statistics from a wide range of fields, giving a more detailed and diverse picture of the EU than national level data.
Regional Statistics Illustrated contains more than fifty constantly updated indicators at NUTS 2 level. Through an interactive map, selected regions can be analysed and compared through different visualisation options. An animated timeline shows how regions have performed over time.
It should be noted that this tool always uses the latest available data in the Eurostat database, while the Statistical Atlas shows maps based on data as published in the Regional yearbook.
