Nomenclature of Territorial Units for Statistics or NUTS (French: Nomenclature des unités territoriales statistiques) is a geocode standard for referencing the subdivisions of countries for statistical purposes. Nomenclature of Territorial Units for Statistics_sentence_0

The standard, adopted in 2003, is developed and regulated by the European Union, and thus only covers the member states of the EU in detail. Nomenclature of Territorial Units for Statistics_sentence_1

The Nomenclature of Territorial Units for Statistics is instrumental in the European Union's Structural Funds and Cohesion Fund delivery mechanisms and for locating the area where goods and services subject to European public procurement legislation are to be delivered. Nomenclature of Territorial Units for Statistics_sentence_2

For each EU member country, a hierarchy of three NUTS levels is established by Eurostat in agreement with each member state; the subdivisions in some levels do not necessarily correspond to administrative divisions within the country. Nomenclature of Territorial Units for Statistics_sentence_3

A NUTS code begins with a two-letter code referencing the country, as abbreviated in the European Union's Interinstitutional Style Guide. Nomenclature of Territorial Units for Statistics_sentence_4

The subdivision of the country is then referred to with one number. Nomenclature of Territorial Units for Statistics_sentence_5

A second or third subdivision level is referred to with another number each. Nomenclature of Territorial Units for Statistics_sentence_6

Each numbering starts with 1, as 0 is used for the upper level. Nomenclature of Territorial Units for Statistics_sentence_7

Where the subdivision has more than nine entities, capital letters are used to continue the numbering. Nomenclature of Territorial Units for Statistics_sentence_8

Below the three NUTS levels are local administrative units (LAUs). Nomenclature of Territorial Units for Statistics_sentence_9

A similar statistical system is defined for the candidate countries and members of the European Free Trade Association, but they are not part of NUTS governed by the regulations. Nomenclature of Territorial Units for Statistics_sentence_10

The current NUTS classification, dated 21 November 2016 and effective from 1 January 2018 (now updated to current members as of 2020), lists 92 regions at NUTS 1, 244 regions at NUTS 2, 1215 regions at NUTS 3 level, and 99,387 local administrative units (LAUs). Nomenclature of Territorial Units for Statistics_sentence_11

National structures Nomenclature of Territorial Units for Statistics_section_0

Not all countries have every level of division, depending on their size. Nomenclature of Territorial Units for Statistics_sentence_12

For example, Luxembourg and Cyprus only have local administrative units (LAUs); the three NUTS divisions each correspond to the entire country itself. Nomenclature of Territorial Units for Statistics_sentence_13

Establishment Nomenclature of Territorial Units for Statistics_section_6

NUTS regions are generally based on existing national administrative subdivisions. Nomenclature of Territorial Units for Statistics_sentence_14

In countries where only one or two regional subdivisions exist, or where the population of existing subdivisions is too small or too large, a second and/or third level is created. Nomenclature of Territorial Units for Statistics_sentence_15

This may be on the first level (ex. Nomenclature of Territorial Units for Statistics_sentence_16

France, Italy, Greece, and Spain), on the second (ex. Nomenclature of Territorial Units for Statistics_sentence_17

Germany) and/or third level (ex. Nomenclature of Territorial Units for Statistics_sentence_18

Belgium). Nomenclature of Territorial Units for Statistics_sentence_19

In countries with small populations, where the entire country would be placed on the NUTS 2 or even NUTS 3 level (ex. Nomenclature of Territorial Units for Statistics_sentence_20

Luxembourg, Cyprus), the regions at levels 1, 2 and 3 are identical to each other (and also to the entire country), but are coded with the appropriate length codes levels 1, 2 and 3. Nomenclature of Territorial Units for Statistics_sentence_21

The NUTS system favors existing administrative units, with one or more assigned to each NUTS level. Nomenclature of Territorial Units for Statistics_sentence_22

Specific guidelines are based in population, leaving little or no role for other types of variables such as area, distance, topography, levels of jurisdiction or history, which can only be considered in (unspecified) types of special cases. Nomenclature of Territorial Units for Statistics_sentence_23

From the NUTS Regulation, the average population size of the regions in the respective level shall lie within the following thresholds: Nomenclature of Territorial Units for Statistics_sentence_24

For non-administrative units, deviations from these population marks exist for particular geographical, socio-economic, historical, cultural or environmental circumstances, especially for islands and outermost regions. Nomenclature of Territorial Units for Statistics_sentence_25
