Maps need to be EU-28[edit]

Current maps are EU-27 and need updating. It will need someone with more skill with the new Eurostat site than I have. Can anyone help? Grhabyt (talk) 10:50, 18 May 2015 (UTC)


AFAIK, Gibraltar is outside of the EU. Somehow. -- 07:25, 26 Feb 2005 (UTC)

No - some provisions do not apply (such as the Customs Union) but it is inside and has been since 1973. That is why Spain had to open the border. See Special member state territories and their relations with the EU. --Henrygb 01:10, 8 May 2005 (UTC)

Requested move[edit]

N.U.T.S. → Nomenclature of Territorial Units for Statistics – Page should not have been moved. Mover found full name too hard to search for, but nobody will search for N.U.T.S. NUTS is a disambig page and should suffice. --Nelson Ricardo 22:23, 18 February 2006 (UTC)

Add *Support or *Oppose followed by an optional one-sentence explanation, then sign your vote with ~~~~
  • Support--Mais oui! 22:27, 18 February 2006 (UTC)

Has already been done. —Nightstallion (?) 21:35, 23 February 2006 (UTC)

LECs and unitarty authorities in Scotland[edit]

Trying to make sense of the refs to LECs and unitary authorities in Scotland. I presume LECs means here local enterprise companies, and these often cover areas with very different boundaries to those covered by unitary local government authorities. Laurel Bush 12:13, 25 April 2006 (UTC).

The LECs only apply in the Highlands and Islands Enterprise area, a NUTS II division. Otherwise Highland would have been geographically too big and the other mainland areas too small. --Henrygb 15:55, 9 June 2006 (UTC)

Cheers. I believe boundaries of Highlands and Islands LECs were changed recently, but I dont have details. This change means the statistical areas have also changed? Laurel Bush 16:51, 9 June 2006 (UTC).

EU 15 , EU 25[edit]

i propose to merge the data. EU now is EU-25. Tobias Conradi (Talk) 13:19, 20 July 2006 (UTC)

NUTS 2 / Names in this column[edit]

It's sometimes written in english (this an english article...) and sometimes in the local language. I think that it shouldn't be this way. Need a more homogenic naming.

Maybe both terms could be written (i.e. the translated name in italic or something similar).

Example :

France NUTS2 : regions (régions)

-- Éole

Candidate countries[edit]

Only CH is listed for Switzerland here, not EO39. Has EO39 been deprecated or are both in use? -- Jao (talk) 20:22, 10 April 2008 (UTC)

Missing Info[edit]

There is not information in this article on how the boundries are drawn, and what rationale is use to create the regions. Clearly declining population size are used at each level, but is there a numerical formula? (e.g. NUTS1 = 1-10 million people, NUTS2 = 100,000-1 million, etc). What is the size range of the regions at each level? --Kevlar (talkcontribs) 23:00, 18 November 2008 (UTC)

Is this what you were thinking of ? [1] --Luxem (talk) 08:48, 19 November 2008 (UTC)

German NUTS II regions[edit]

I could be wrong, but aren't there too few NUTS II regions listed for Germany? The article mentions 22 but Eurostat use 39, as confirmed here: All the other regions in the database accord with those listed. --EUstudent2009 (talk) 17:28, 13 August 2009 (UTC)

They are definitely 39. A user changed it to 22 in June based on the fact that the table read "Regierungsbezirke" and it's quite true that there are only 22 Regierungsbezirke. But Germany's NUTS2 is a mixture of current Regierungsbezirke, old Regierungsbezirke that have since been merged, and entire states that never had Regierungsbezirke. The important thing here is of course not how many Regierungsbezirke there are, but how many NUTS2 regions there are, which is clearly 39. I changed the name field to "-", but any ideas how to clearer describe the situation would be welcome. —JAOTC 10:37, 15 August 2009 (UTC)
Thank you very much for your help, I thought that was the case. --EUstudent2009 (talk) 13:03, 15 August 2009 (UTC)

NUTS. Not NTUS.[edit]

European Commission, Eurlex, Eurostat, UK Parliament, Office for National Statistics, DEFRA, everybody uses the acronym "NUTS" in English, not "NTUS". So I've changed the article accordingly. Regards Anameofmyveryown (talk) 22:16, 6 April 2010 (UTC)

Third Map[edit]

Hi. In the third map only one colour was used, where as Map 1 and 2 have a different colour for countries that are not part of NUTS. Rui ''Gabriel'' Correia (talk) 19:34, 12 August 2011 (UTC)

NUTS and other systems[edit]

The lead section has the last paragraph (simplified here): "In addition to the full three levels for the European Union countries, all other countries have a NUTS code with {decription of code}... There are some anomalies {examples}... NUTS is thus in some extent similar to the ISO 3166-2 standard, as well as the FIPS 10-4 standard of the United States." This doesn't seem very clear or particularly helpful - in what way is it similar? Is "thus" supposed to follow from the anomalies or from the structure of NUTS coding? I've done what checking I can on the ISO and FIPS standards (not much) but I can't see any indication that they have the same anomalies as NUTS. If they do, it would be good to explicitly mention this. If the line is supposed to relate to the way NUTS codes are allocated outside the EU, the line should be moved (and again, clarified to say in what way they are similar). Can someone help clear this up? -- Shimmin Beg (talk) 08:41, 13 October 2011 (UTC)

Statistical regions of Serbia[edit]

Could someone add the Serbian NUTS-1 and -2 to the images?--Zoupan 11:38, 20 June 2013 (UTC)

German districts NUTS 3 (?)[edit]

If only German districts are counted as NUTS 3 entries, the value for Germany NUTS 3 should be "402" per last DESTATIS statistics (see Germany ref 83). However I am not completely sure about the relation between "districts" and "NUTS 3 elements" (if it is exactly 1:1) and couldn't find an actual source for it (EU statistics re-designing their website every few years isn't really helping). I reverted my update for now, until a more knowledgeable editor can look into it and fix the numbers, if necessary. GermanJoe (talk) 15:13, 10 February 2015 (UTC)

This article is outdated. The new classification was set by the Commission Regulation (EU) No 1319/2013 of 9 December 2013 amending annexes to Regulation (EC) No 1059/2003 of the European Parliament and of the Council on the establishment of a common classification of territorial units for statistics (NUTS). There are 402 NUTS level 3 units in Germanyy according to this Regulation. Aotearoa (talk) 16:17, 25 February 2015 (UTC)
Thanks for the clarification and the tag, Aotearoa. I'll leave updating to interested topic experts though - the whole article, its terminology and structure is too complex for my pay grade. GermanJoe (talk) 16:50, 25 February 2015 (UTC)
