Description: Eurostat is the Statistical Office of the European Communities. Data cover the European Union, its Member States and partners, and are published under a variety of themes and collections. Eurostat does not collect data; this is done by the statistical offices of member states. Its main role is to process and publish comparable statistical information at the European level.

Regio, Eurostat’s harmonized regional statistical database “covers the main aspects of economic and social life in the European Union, and contains data for local areas classified to the first three levels of the Nomenclature of Statistical Territorial Units. This database is available free of charge online.”

The Urban Audit component of Regio “provides reliable and comparative information on selected urban areas in Member States (MS) of the European Union (EU) and the Candidate Countries. The 336 variables used are structured in nine statistical fields (demography, social aspects, economic aspects, civic involvement, training and education, environment, travel and transport, information society, culture and recreation) and twenty-five domains.”
