Measuring regional economies in OECD countries

Traditionally, regional policy analysis has used data collected for administrative regions, that is, the regional boundaries as organised by governments. Such data can provide sound evidence on the contribution of regions to national performance as well as on the persistence of disparities within a country. They show, for example, that during the past 15 years, more than 30% of growth in GDP, employment and population within the OECD is attributable to a small number of regions.
