The Eurostat Regional Yearbook 2018 contains data on regional policies and European Commission priorities, as well as statistics on population, health, education and training, labour market, economy, structural business statistics, research and innovation, digital economy and society, tourism, transport and agriculture.

The regional yearbook provides an overview of the wide range of regional statistics available for the 276 regions at NUTS level 2 (Nomenclature of territorial units for statistics) and, for some indicators, the 1 342 smaller regions at NUTS level 3. Data is available for all 28 Member States of the EU and, where possible, regions in the EFTA and candidate countries.

The articles are updated or replaced once a year (the present versions are based on a set of data that were extracted in March and April 2018).

All maps can be explored interactively using Eurostat’s statistical atlas (see user manual).
