Availability

The indicator is available for ESPON Space; however, regional data on employed persons have not been reliable for some countries (Italy, Iceland); thus further investigations are needed.

Geographical scale

Data available at NUTS-3 level and higher.

Data source

Own calculations based upon data provided from Eurostat.
