The decisions on the Structural Funds for 2007-13 will probably be taken in 2005. As these political decisions are based on objective quantitative regional data, Eurostat�s offer of a rich set of comparable regional statistics is in the media spotlight.
This yearbook highlights many aspects of regional data and the analyses which can be made with them. Some fundamental chapters, such as regional GDP, regional household accounts, the labour market, demographic statistics and agriculture, are a recognised backbone of the book.
One chapter is new this year: education, giving interesting insights into topics such as lifelong learning participation in the various regions.
As last year for the first time, all regional analysis in this yearbook is based on NUTS 2003. In the meantime, the 10 new Member States have also been integrated formally into the new regional classification (in the form of an amendment to the NUTS regulation). The texts of the regulation and the amendment are available on the CD-ROM - as is the annex, which lists the regions making up the nomenclature in each country.
