Abstract:
This data set represents the regions for level 1, 2 and 3 of the Nomenclature of Territorial Units for Statistics (NUTS) for 2013. The NUTS nomenclature is a hierarchical classification of statistical regions and subdivides the EU economic territory into regions of three different levels (NUTS 1, 2 and 3, respectively, moving from larger to smaller territorial units). NUTS 1 is the most aggregated level. The NUTS classification has been officially established through Regulation (EC) No 1059/2003 of the European Parliament and of the Council and amendments. A non official NUTS-like classification has been defined for the EFTA countries and candidate countries. An introduction to the NUTS classification is available here: http://ec.europa.eu/eurostat/web/nuts/overview This data set has been created mainly from the EuroBoundary Map v 8.0 and 8.2 (Eurogeographics), geographic information from TurkStat for Turkey, the Global Administrative Unit Layer from the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO-UN) for Macedonia and a list of communes per statistical region provided by the countries. The public data set is available under the "Download link" indicated below. Available scales are 1M, 3M, 10M, 20M, 60M. The full data set is available via the "EC restricted download link" under "GISCO.NUTS_2013". Here six scale ranges (100K, 1M, 3M, 10M and 20M, 60M) are available. Note as 04/06/2015 only 100K and 01M are available. Other scales currently in production.This dataset contains the poygons data, and can be joined to NUTS_RG_BN_01M by NUTS_ID fieldCoverage is the economical territory of the EU, EFTA countries and candidate countries as in 2013. Official NUTS geometry has yet to be approved for Serbia and Albania.
