      This dataset contains regional data on population by age and sex, average population, regional surface and population density with a geographic coverage of TL2 which corresponds to the higher level (Territorial Level 2) consisting of about 362 macro-regions. The dataset is broken down into 3 set of variables which are population and area, population by age groups and mortality.
    • loader image Innovation indicators
      This dataset contains data on regional innovation: R&D expenditures by sector, R&D personnel by sector, educational attainment of the labour force, enrollment by level of education, employment in high-technology sectors, patent applications, percentage of households with access to broadband with a geographic coverage of TL2. The data is compared in terms of million of current USD PPP or in terms of percentage of the population.

    Regional well-being

    The Regional well-being dataset presents nine dimensions central for well-being at local level and for OECD regions, covering material conditions (jobs and housing) and quality of life (education, health, environment, safety and access to services). The set of indicators selected to measure these dimensions is a combination of people's individual attributes and their local conditions. This dataset, the website and the publication "How’s life in your region?" are outputs designed from the framework for regional and local well-being, which starts with the consideration that making better policies for better lives means understanding what matters to people.

    The Regional income distribution dataset presents comparable data on sub-national differences in income inequality and poverty for OECD countries. The data by region provide information on income distribution within regions (Gini coefficients and income quintiles), and relative income poverty (with poverty thresholds set in respect of the national population), for OECD countries. These new data complement international assessments of differences across regions in living conditions by documenting how household income is distributed within regions and how many people are poor relatively to the typical citizen of their country.
