EuroStat REGIONAL YEARBOOK 2011 [9 December 2011]
[full-text, 240 pages]
Press Release 9 December 2011
Eurostat regional yearbook 2011
Regional diversity of the EU illustrated through maps and figures
Which EU regions are the most built up and which are the least? Which region has the highest proportion of the
population who have completed tertiary education? In which cities is poverty considered as a problem by the
citizens? And which cities are considered to have the worst air quality?
The answers to these questions and many more are found in the 2011 regional yearbook from Eurostat, the
statistical office of the European Union. The publication gives an overview of the most recent economic, social
and demographic developments in the 271 NUTS level 2 regions of the 27 Member States of the European Union
as well as, when available, the regions in the four EFTA countries (Iceland, Liechtenstein, Norway and
Switzerland) and the four candidate countries (Montenegro, Croatia, the former Yugoslav Republic of
Macedonia and Turkey).
The Eurostat regional yearbook 2011 not only covers NUTS level 2 regions and cities, but also for the first time,
the much more detailed NUTS level 3 regions for a selection of indicators. The Eurostat regional yearbook contains
many thematic maps, which is the most user friendly way to present such a large amount of detailed statistics.
The Eurostat regional yearbook 2011 includes a new chapter on land cover and land use as well as on densely
and thinly populated areas. It also contains chapters on population, labour market, labour cost, education, health,
cities, gross domestic product, household accounts, structural business statistics, information society, tourism,
costal regions, transport and science, technology & innovation.
AND MUCH MORE....
