Territorial typologies manual - acknowledgements


This Methodological manual on territorial typologies provides information that data suppliers concerned with subnational statistics within the European Union (EU) need to ensure coherency and comparability. It also helps end-users understand and interpret the wide range of official statistics that are available at a subnational level for different areas and regions of the EU.

The publication marks an important milestone as it reflects legislative developments — through an initiative called Tercet — which integrated the most relevant territorial typologies into a consolidated and amended NUTS Regulation at the start of 2018.
