 There is no obligation for European Regional Development Fund (ERDF) and Cohesion Fund (CF) programmes to report financial data at NUTS3. However, NUTS3 data can be very interesting to analyse which locations benefit most from the different type of interventions.

The ex post evaluation of Cohesion Policy programmes 2007-2013, focusing on the ERDF / CF – Work Package Zero ‘Data collection and quality assessment’ analysed categorisation data for 2007-2012 available to the European Commission Directorate-General for Regional and Urban Policy, showing that about 30% of the amounts allocated by the programmes is reported at NUTS3. 220 out of 315 OPs report at NUTS 2 or less detailed level, 62 report allocations at both NUTS3 and less detailed, and 33 have a complete breakdown at NUTS3.
