Abstract: REGIO contains socioeconomic information on the various regions of the European Union. These are classified in line with a specific system called NUTS (nomenclature of territorial units for statistics). NUTS has three interrelated levels as follows:

  • level 1: 77 European Union regions
  • level 2: 206 basic administrative units
  • level 3: 1,031 subdivisions of the above

REGIO is subdivided into seven statistical domains. Not all data are available at the most detailed level (level 3). On the other hand, if data are available at level 3, they are also available at levels 1 and 2.

The subjects covered by REGIO are:

  • demography
  • economic accounts
  • unemployment
  • labor force sample survey
  • energy statistics
  • agriculture
  • transport
  • research and development

Depending on the subject, dat are available from 1970, 1975 or 1983. The frequency is always annual with the exception of certain monthly unemployment statistics.
