Eurostat Regional Statistics Visualization
Based on NCVA/NComVA HMTL5 visualization tool
EC countries experience a growing interest in regional development. The performance of regional economies and the effectiveness of regional policy help determine a nation’s growth and shape the measure of well-being across countries. For the past years Eurostat has been studying regional disparities and regional economic growth in its member countries in order to evaluate innovative strategies for development and spread successful policies. This interest has generated new demand for sound statistical information at the sub-national level on factors that are important to enhance economic growth and living conditions.
Eurostat — the statistical office of the EU — has the role of informing the public about important developments in the EU and within important European policy frameworks. In this overall framework, Eurostat provides interactive statistical visual analyses related to important European Commission policy frameworks or important economic, social or environmental phenomena.
The red arrow highlights "In the Spotlight" pointing to our visualization. Indicators to support the Europe 2020 strategy are also presented using our visualization - focusing on statistics related to the Europe 2020 strategy, showing the longer-term trends as described by the headline indicators of the strategy together with other relevant statistical data which enable an understanding of the driving forces behind the headline indicators.
We introduce two interactive visualization tools jointly developed by Eurostat and NComVA with visualization technique originating from NComVA and NCVA.
The first to0l contains statistical data for 270 European regions at NUTS2 level and almost 2000 NUTS3 regions grouped into different statistical domains. Using the interactive map, individual regions can be selected while different visualisation methods allow the comparison and analysis of regional data in a user-friendly analytical way. The animated timeline shows how regions have performed over time.
The Eurostat tool is available at: http://epp.eurostat.ec.europa.eu/cache/RSI/
