Eurostat regional yearbook 2013Eurostat regional yearbook 2013

Statistical information is an important tool for understanding and quantifying the impact of political decisions in a specific territory or region. The Eurostat regional yearbook 2013 gives a detailed picture relating to a broad range of statistical topics across the regions of the Member States of the European Union (EU), as well as the regions of EFTA and candidate countries. Each chapter presents statistical information in maps, figures and tables, accompanied by a description of the main findings, data sources and policy context. These regional indicators are presented for the following 11 subjects: economy, population, health, education, the labour market, structural business statistics, tourism, the information society, agriculture, transport, and science, technology and innovation. In addition, four special focus chapters are included in this edition: these look at European cities, the definition of city and metro regions, income and living conditions according to the degree of urbanisation, and rural development.

The Statistical Atlas is an interactive map viewer, which contains statistical maps from the Eurostat regional yearbook and provides the possibility to download these maps as high-resolution PDFs.

The most recent version of the Eurostat regional yearbook is available in Statistics Explained, which also contains translations of all of the articles in German and French as well as three articles in the 18 official Community languages.

The Statistical Atlas is an interactive map viewer for statistical and topographi­cal maps. The user can combine geographical information from various "base maps", such as the borders of the NUTS regions or the Urban Audit cities, with information from statistical maps.

Various functionalities are offered to view the details of the map display:

  • Zooming in and out on Europe and outermost regions
  • Changing the transparency settings of the map layers
  • Retrieving the code, geographical label and statistical value of a specific NUTS region or Urban Audit city.
The Statistical Atlas contains all the maps from the Eurostat regional yearbook 2013 sorted by publication themes and chapters.


PDF and Excel files per chapter

Here you can find the PDF version of the Eurostat regional yearbook 2013, presented as one (high-resolution) PDF file per chapter. The advantage of downloading the individual chapters instead of the whole publication concerns the quality of the statistical maps.

The Excel files, also organised per chapter, contain the Eurostat source data for each map, table and figure published in the Eurostat regional yearbook 2013, showing the situation in the database at the time when the publication was compiled (February–March 2013).

If you are looking for the latest available data, please consult the Eurostat online database — the Eurostat source codes provided under each table, figure and map in the PDF version of the publication give hyperlinks to the correct dataset.
