image of OECD Regions and Cities at a Glance 2018

This report looks at how regions and cities across the OECD are progressing towards stronger economies, higher quality of life for their citizens and more inclusive societies. This edition presents regional and metropolitan updates for more than 40 indicators to assess disparities within countries and their evolution since the turn of the new millennium. The report covers all OECD countries and, where data is available, Brazil, People’s Republic of China, Colombia, Lithuania, Peru, the Russian Federation, Tunisia and South Africa.

Three new features characterise this edition. First, an assessment migrant integration, based on new indicators produced for OECD regions. Second, recent trends on entrepreneurship in regions, with new indicators on creation and destruction of firms and on the jobs associated with such dynamics. Third, an assessment of socio-economic conditions, inequalities and poverty in metropolitan areas and their neighbourhoods.

More specifically, the report documents trends in GDP per capita, productivity, jobs and entrepreneurship (). The impact of such trends on people’s lives is addressed in , which provides an updated and extended assessment of well-being across all OECD regions using consistent indicators about several aspects that matter for people’s lives, including material conditions (income, jobs and housing) and quality of life (health, education, access to services, environment, safety, civic engagement and governance).
