«Cien ciudades inteligentes y climáticamente neutras de aquí a 2030», la llamada misión sobre las ciudades. Las cien ciudades proceden de los veintisiete Estados miembros, con doce ciudades adicionales procedentes de países asociados o con el potencial de asociarse a Horizonte Europa, el programa de investigación e innovación de la UE (2021-2027). El 75 % de la ciudadanía de la UE vive en zonas urbanas. A escala mundial, las zonas urbanas consumen más del 65 % de la energía del planeta, lo que representa más del 70 % de las emisiones de CO2. Por lo tanto, es importante que las ciudades actúen como ecosistemas de experimentación e innovación para ayudar a todos los demás en su transición hacia la neutralidad climática de aquí a 2050. | RAPID/22/2591, 28.4.2022
The Quality of Life in European Cities Survey (QLEC Survey) is a statistical survey that the European Commission has been carrying out since 2004. It aims at measuring the quality of life in 83 European (greater) cities through a perception survey. This study introduces the results of the revision of the 2019 implementation of the QLEC survey, in the form of a scientific paper. The findings of the revision are accompanied with recommendations for the improvements to make in the next survey wave. [+]
Updated with 2019 and 2020 data 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 — statistics visualised 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.| multimedia
Statistical information is an important tool for understanding and quantifying the impact of political decisions in a specific territory or region. The Eurostat regional yearbook 2021 provides a detailed picture relating to a broad range of statistical topics across the regions of the EU Member States, as well as the regions of the EFTA and candidate countries.
Each chapter presents statistical information in the form of maps, figures and infographics, accompanied by a descriptive analysis highlighting the main findings. Regional indicators are presented for the following 13 subjects: population, health, education, the labour market, living conditions, the digital society, the economy, business, research and development, tourism, transport, the environment and agriculture.

This manual has been produced in close collaboration by six organisations — the European Commission, the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO), the United Nations Human Settlements Programme (UN-Habitat), the International Labour Organization (ILO), the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) and The World Bank.
It presents a harmonised methodology to facilitate international statistical comparisons and to classify the entire territory of a country along an urban-rural continuum. The degree of urbanisation classification defines cities, towns and semi-dense areas, and rural areas.
This manual is intended to complement and not replace the definitions used by national statistical offices (NSOs) and ministries. It has been designed principally as a guide for data producers, suppliers and statisticians so that they have the necessary information to implement the methodology and ensure coherency within their data collections. It may also be of interest to users of subnational statistics so they may better understand, interpret and use official subnational statistics for taking informed decisions and policymaking. [+]
What city is the cleanest or the safest? In which city is easy to find a job or a house? Which city has the best public transport or air quality? Answers to these questions and many more can be found in the latest Report on the Quality of life in European Cities, 2020. This report summarises the results of the 5th survey of European cities, which covers 83 cities and was carried out in 2019.
The new Quality of life in European cities survey provides a unique insight into city life. It gathers the experiences and opinions of city dwellers across Europe. It shows that people living in northern EU cities are the most satisfied with their city, but satisfaction in eastern EU cities is increasingly rapidly. People living in a large city are more satisfied with public transport, but those living in smaller cities feel safer when walking alone at night.
Most people think their city is a good place for minorities, but in some cities less than half the residents think this is the case. For the first time, the survey includes questions about the quality of the city administration. For example, half of the city residents think there is corruption in their city administration, but in the worst cities four in five think this is the case compared to only one in five in the best cities.
The interactive maps and spider charts are another novelty. Below people can select the questions they want to see on a map and they can select for which city they want to see an overview of how it compares the average city and the best and the worst city in the survey. Both maps and charts can be downloaded. Under the maps and spider charts, you will find addition information, including all the maps and charts of the questions used in the report, the data, the full questionnaire and a technical report on the survey.
