NUTS Classifications in Austria

NUTS (French abbr. for nomenclature des units territoriales statistiques) is a system of hierarchically organised territorial units used for statistical purposes within the EU. It consists of three formal levels, NUTS 1: regions within the European Union (three in Austria), NUTS 2: national administrative regions (in Austria, the nine federal states), NUTS 3: subdivisions of the national administrative regions (35 in Austria; usually an aggregation of political districts, but in some cases corresponding to districts of jurisdiction, or Gerichtsbezirke). Austria’s NUTS regions were delineated in 1991/1992 under the lead management of Statistics Austria (NUTS-Units).
