The Regional database contains annual data from 1995 to the most recent available year (generally 2018 for demographic and labour market data, 2017 for regional accounts, innovation and social statistics).

The data collection is undertaken by the Centre for Entrepreneurship, SMEs, Regions and Cities (CFE). Statistics are collected through an annual questionnaire sent to the delegates of the Working Party on Territorial Indicators (WPTI), and via downloads from the web-sites of National Statistical Offices and Eurostat

Geographic coverage

The OECD has classified two levels of geographic units within each member country: large regions (Territorial level 2 or TL2) composed by 393 regions, and small regions (Territorial Level 3 or TL3) composed by more than 2 256 small regions. TL3 regions are further classified as predominantly urban (PU), predominantly rural (PR) and intermediate (IN). All the territorial units are defined within national borders, and each TL3 region is contained in one TL2 region, with the exception of the United States. National values have been computed based on regional estimates. For this reason, it is possible that in some cases these values differ from national statistics.
