(23 September 2020) – Eurostat, the statistical office of the European Union, has just issued the 2020 edition of its regional yearbook.
The publication provides a statistical overview of the regions of the EU across a broad range of subjects: population, health, education, the labour market, living conditions, the economy, business, research and innovation, digital society, tourism, transport, the environment and agriculture.
This year’s edition includes new additional chapters: one on statistics related to living conditions, which can be used to analyse progress with respect to the European Pillar of Social Rights, and the other on the environment and natural resources, which helps to assess developments in relation to the European Green Deal.
The publication includes statistics for the 240 regions in the EU at level 2 of NUTS (classification of territorial units for statistics) and, for some indicators, the 1 169 regions at the more detailed level 3. Data are available for all 27 Member States of the EU, the United Kingdom, and, where possible, for statistical regions of the EFTA and candidate countries.
