Corporate leverage is an important variable for financial stability. The System of National Accounts provides a solid methodology to monitor aggregated trends. In this framework, the valuation of balance sheet items at market prices implies that both changes in volume and changes in prices define the evolution of corporate leverage over time.

This document presents the current NUTS nomenclature with 104 regions at NUTS level 1, 283 at NUTS level 2 and 1 345 at NUTS level 3. The NUTS is the official division of the EU and the UK for regional statistics, visualised on maps. For EFTA and candidate countries, the similar concept of “statistical regions” is used. These are as well part of this document.
EU Member States are often compared with each other, but in reality it can be difficult to contrast small countries like Luxembourg or Malta with larger ones such as France or Germany. Analysing data at a regional level can highlight disparities either across the EU or within countries, such as an east-west divide in Germany or a north-south divide in Italy.
The interactive publication Regions in Europe — 2022 interactive edition offers a range of interactive visualisations accompanied by short texts that allow you to compare your region with other regions in Europe. The publication is divided into three principal sections: people and society, economic activities, the environment and natural resources.
