OECD Regions at a Glance
- 1999-0057 (online)
- 1999-0049 (print)
National growth tends to be driven by the dynamism of a small number of regions. OECD Regions at a Glance analyses and compares major territorial patterns and regional trends across OECD countries. It assesses the impact of regions on national growth. It identifies unused resources that can be mobilised to improve regional competitiveness. And it tackles more intangible factors that can make the difference: it shows how regions compete in terms of well-being (access to higher education, health services, safety etc.). Regions at a Glance presents over 30 indicators covering such variables as growth, employment, unemployment and crime in a reader-friendly format. Each indicator is illustrated by graphs and maps. A dynamic link (StatLink) is provided for each graph and map, which directs the user to a web page where the corresponding data are available in Excel®.
