1. Figures are people who have been the victim of murder. Data based on crimes known by one police force (Carabineros de Chile).

2. Reported criminal offences.

3. In some cases the distribution of indicators by regions is unknown. Therefore the sums of regions are not always equal with the total for Estonia.

4. In a few cases, when it's hard to identify the exact place where a crime is committed, the sum of provincial data doesn't equal the regional total data (the latter including more crimes).

5. National Census 2012 State Law Enforcement. As part of the implementation of the National Census of Law Enforcement 2011 and 2012, the figure provided for 2010 and 2011 corresponds to the data of the relevant offenses, registered preliminary enquiries initiated by the Public Prosecutor of the Common Jurisdiction in each of the federal states.

6. Data have been revised. They include ascertained crimes from the category of homicide and infanticide in any form.

7. Murders account for surveys of the judicial police coming out with proposed charges for the crime of murder consummated.

8. From 2009, police statistics on crime have been revised and are thus not comparable to the old police statistics; this translates into a break in series between 2008 and 2009.

9. The police districts are different from CBS districts, Northern district data Includes Haifa District. Some files are not included in the districts data when they are managed at the national level. Homicides data includes acts of terrorism.

Private Hospital includes both private acute and/or psychiatric hospitals and free-standing day hospital facilities. Available beds are those immediately available (occupied and unoccupied) for the care of admitted patients as required. In the case of free-standing day hospital facilities, they include chairs, trolleys, recliners and cots and are used mainly for post-surgery recovery purposes only.

3. Turkey Health statistics have been revised for 2000 and onwards. Ministry of Defence Hospitals were not included before 2012.

The disposable income of private households is derived from the balance of primary income by adding all current transfers from the government, except social transfers in kind and subtracting current transfers from the households such as income taxes, regular taxes on wealth, regular inter-household cash transfers and social contributions.

The disposable income of households does not take into account social transfer in kind to households. A preferable measure of material condition of households at regional level could be the adjusted disposable income which additionally reallocates income from government and non-profit institutions serving the households, through expenditure on individual goods and services such as health, education and social housing (in-kind expenditure). Interregional disparities of adjusted household income could shed a light on possible areas of social exclusion, material deprivation and lack of access to essential services.

1. Life satisfaction is expressed as the mean score on an 11-point scale (based on the Cantril ladder measure). It is measured using a survey question in which respondents are asked “Please imagine a ladder, with steps numbered from 0 at the bottom to 10 at the top. The top of the ladder represents the best possible life for you and the bottom of the ladder represents the worst possible life for you. On which step of the ladder would you say you personally feel you stand at this time?”.

2. Regional estimates are derived by micro-data pooling the yearly surveys 2006-14. TL3 regions for Estonia. Estimates are not available for the following regions: Northwest Territories, Nunavut, Yukon (Canada); Helsinki-Usimaa, Aland (Finland).

Some motor vehicle thefts are recorded by the corresponding national institutions (such as central offices) of the police and gendarmerie. These thefts are not registered in a particular TL3 region, thus the national total does not fully correspond with the sum of the TL3 regions.

4. Mexico: National Census 2012 State Law Enforcement. As part of the implementation of the National Census of Law Enforcement 2011 and 2012, the figure provided for 2010 and 2011 corresponds to the data of the relevant offenses, registered preliminary inquiries initiated by the Public Prosecutor of the Common Jurisdiction in each of the federal states.

5. New Zealand: the number of offences police recorded for theft or unlawful taking of a motor vehicle. This includes instances where a vehicle is taken for a joy ride and later recovered, as well as instances where vehicles are taken permanently.

6. Slovak Republic: since 2005, data on NUTS 1 level need not to be equal to the sum of NUTS 2 level data because NUTS 1 data also includes regionally unspecified offences recorded by Railway Police, Military Police, Corps of Prison and Court Guard, and Customs Director.

7. Switzerland: from 2009, police statistics on crime have been revised and are thus not comparable to the old police statistics; this translates into a break in series between 2008 and 2009.

8. Germany, Estonia, Greece, Iceland, Korea, Luxembourg, Netherlands, Norway, and United Kingdom: data not available at the regional level.

The definition of part-time work varies considerably across OECD member countries. The OECD defines part-time working in terms of usual working hours fewer than 30 per week. At regional level there does not exist a harmonised definition of part-time employment. Indeed, for some countries, the number of hours defining the number of part-time employees in a region differs from the OECD definition. This makes regional values to differ from national estimates relying on a harmonised definition. However, for European TL2 regions, the distinction between full-time and part-time work is based on a spontaneous response by the respondent; except in the Netherlands, Iceland and Norway were part-time is determined if the usual hours are fewer than 35 hours.

1. EU23 countries: Austria, Belgium, Czech Republic, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Ireland, Italy, Latvia, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Netherlands, Poland, Portugal, Slovak Republic, Slovenia, Spain, Sweden and United Kingdom.

2. Canada: Part-time employment consists of persons who usually work less than 30 hours per week at their main or only job. Estimates in thousands, rounded to the nearest hundred.

3. Israel: part-time employment consists of persons who usually work less than 35 hours a week.

4. Turkey: Total figures may not be exact due to the rounding of the numbers. Sample size is too small for reliable estimates for figures less than two thousand persons in each cell. Full time/part time distinction is made by the usual hours worked in the main job using 30 hours threshold.

5. United States: a part-time schedule in the U.S. is officially defined as 1–34 hours per week. To approximate the OECD definition of less than 30 hours per week, the first two categories from the persons at work by hours of work table were added up. Hence, the universe for the data below excludes persons who were not at work during the Current Population Survey reference week. (Nationally in 2013, about 3.5 per cent of employed persons were not at work in an average week).

6. Canada and Finland: no data on part time employment by gender.

1. The OECD REGPAT Database presents patent data that have been linked to regions according to the addresses of the applicants and inventors. For more information on the database, see: www.oecd.org/dataoecd/22/19/40794372.pdf.

2. A patent is generally granted by a national patent office or by a regional office that does the work for a number of countries, such as the European Patent Office and the African Regional Intellectual Property Organization. Under such regional systems, an applicant requests protection for the invention in one or more countries, and each country decides whether to offer patent protection within its borders. In this publication the patent data comes from the WIPO-administered Patent Co-operation Treaty (PCT) which provides for the filing of a single international patent application which has the same effect as national applications filed in the designated countries. An applicant seeking protection may file one application and request protection in as many signatory states as needed. More info on PCT: www.wipo.int/export/sites/www/pct/en/basic_facts/faqs_about_the_pct.pdf.

3. Patent counts are provided for selected technology areas such as information and communication technology (ICT), biotechnology, nanotechnology and for technologies related to the environment and health. For more information, see www.oecd.org/dataoecd/5/19/37569377.pdf. For classifications of environmental related technologies see www.oecd.org/env/consumption-innovation/indicator.htm.

4. OECD (19) refers to Australia, Austria, Belgium, Canada, Chile, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, France, Germany, Italy, Japan, Mexico, Netherlands, Norway, Portugal, Spain, Sweden, and the United States. Only for these 19 countries was it possible to link the addresses of the applicants and inventors to the post codes of municipalities belonging to the metropolitan area.

Gross Domestic Expenditure on R&D (GERD) is the total intramural expenditure on R&D performed in the region or country during a given period. GERD is disaggregated in four sectors: business enterprise, government, higher education and private and non-profit. The Business Enterprise sector is comprehensive of all firms, organizations and institutions whose primary activity is the market production of goods or services (other than higher education) for sale to the general public at an economically significant price. It also includes the private non-profit institutions mainly serving the above mentioned firms, organizations and institutions (See Frascati Manual section 3.4). The Government sector is comprehensive of all departments, offices and other bodies which furnish, but normally do not sell to the community, those common services, other than higher education, which cannot otherwise be conveniently and economically provided, as well as those that administer the state and the economic and social policy of the community. (Public enterprises are included in the business enterprise sector). It also includes non-profit institutions controlled and mainly financed by government, but not administered by the higher education sector (see Frascati Manual section 3.5). The higher education sector is comprehensive of all universities, colleges of technology and other institutions of post-secondary education, whatever their source of finance or legal status. It also includes all research institutes, experimental stations and clinics operating under the direct control of or administered by or associated with higher education institutions (see Frascati Manual section 3.7). The Private non-profit sector is comprehensive of Non-market, private non-profit institutions serving households (i.e. the general public) and private individuals or households (see Frascati Manual section 3.6).

Perceived social network support is based on the survey question: “If you were in trouble, do you have relatives or friends you can count on to help you whenever you need them, or not?”

Regional estimates are derived by micro-data pooling the yearly surveys 2006-14 and they show the percentage of the regional sample responding “Yes” to the survey question. TL3 regions for Estonia. Estimates are not available for the following regions: Northwest Territories, Nunavut, Yukon (Canada); Helsinki-Usimaa, Aland (Finland).

Tax revenue: comprises taxes on production and imports (D2), current taxes on income and wealth (D5) and capital taxes (D91). It includes both own-source tax revenue (or “autonomous”) and tax revenue shared between central and subnational governments. NB: the SNA 2008 has introduced some changes concerning the classification of some shared tax revenues. In several countries, certain tax receipts have been recently reclassified as transfers and no longer as shared taxes.

1. Data at country level are derived mainly from the OECD National Accounts harmonised according to the new standards of the System of National Accounts (SNA) 2008, implemented by most OECD countries since December 2014 (exceptions are, at the time of this publication: Chile, Japan and Turkey which are still under SNA 1993). They are complemented by data from Eurostat, IMF (Chile) and national statistical institutes for some countries or indicators (in particular, territorial organisation). Data were extracted in January 2016. Subnational government: is defined here as the sum (non-consolidated) of subsectors S 1312 (federated government) and S 1313 (local government).

2. Total public expenditure comprises: current expenditure (compensation of employees, intermediate consumption, social expenditure, subsidies and other current transfers, taxes, financial charges, adjustments) and capital expenditure (investments plus capital transfers (i.e. investment grants and subsidies in cash or in kind made by subnational governments to other institutional units).

3. Total public revenue comprises tax revenue (see below), transfers (current and capital grants and subsidies), tariffs and fees, property income and social contributions;

4. Public investment includes gross capital formation and acquisitions, less disposals of non-financial non-produced assets. Gross fixed capital formation (or fixed investment) is the main component of investments. NB: since the new standards of the SNA 2008, expenditures on research and development and weapons systems are included in gross fixed capital formation.

5. The General Government gross debt definition based on the SNA 2008, includes the sum of the following liabilities: currency and deposits + debt securities + loans + Insurance pension and standardised guarantees + other accounts payable. Most debt instruments are valued at market prices. NB: OECD definition differs from the one defined in the EU Maastricht protocol which is restricted to the sum of the first three items (i.e. mainly borrowing).

The indicator on young people neither in employment nor in education and training (NEET) corresponds to the percentage of the population 18-24 who are not employed and not involved in further education or training. The numerator of the indicator refers to persons who meet the following two conditions: (a) they are not employed (i.e. unemployed or inactive according to the International Labour Organisation definition) and (b) they have not received any education or training in the four weeks preceding the survey. The denominator in the total population consists of the same age group and gender, excluding the respondents who have not answered the question “participation to regular education and training”, http://ec.europa.eu/eurostat/data/database.
