NUTS3 Boundary areas

Eurostat, the statistical office of the European Union (EU) has defined an administrative division for all European member countries. This division is called the Nomenclature of Territorial Units for Statistics (NUTS). The idea behind the NUTS is to have a uniform division through which it is possible to compare data among the member countries. The NUTS division has existed since 1988.

Since January 1st 2012 the latest NUTS classification is in use. The official name of this version is NUTS 2010.

The data set consists of 4 NUTS levels: NUTS 0 to NUTS 3. For every area, the official NUTS codes and the NUTS names are provided. The NUTS code is used to link Eurostat data to the map. Furthermore, the dataset contains population figures from Eurostat.

Pricing on the datasets are available on request.
