ENUTS2_2013 is the third regular amendment to the annexes to the ENUTS2 classification. ENUTS2_2013 was enforced on 31 December 2013 and was applied from 1 January 2015. ENUTS2_2013 identifies the Nomenclature of Territorial Units for Statistics (NUTS) within Europe in which the household was enumerated. NUTS2 is the second level territorial units within countries. NUTS is a standard administrative division of the European Union, and was developed by the EU. The European Free Trade Association extends the NUTS system to several additional countries outside of the EU (e.g. Turkey), and they are also incorporated into this variable.

The first 3-digits of ENUTS2_2013 variable provide the COUNTRY code followed by the 3-digit NUTS2 code. The labels include the standard code for the NUTS1 (2013) system and the name of the NUTS2 region, separated by a slash.

Smaller sub-national units are available for most countries in ENUTS3_2013. Larger sub-national units are available for most countries in ENUTS1_2013. The full set of geography variables for the countries can be found in the IPUMS International Geography variables list. For cross-national geographic analysis on the first and second major administrative level refer to GEOLEV1, and GEOLEV2. More information on IPUMS-International geography can be found here.

To address issues of changing geography and ENUTS codes, IPUMS has created ENUTS2_2013 as an extension to the ENUTS2 variable. All newer samples post 2010 are available in ENUTS2_2013. Listed below are ENUTS2_2013 and ENUTS2 availability.

Austria 1971, 1981, 1991, 2001, 2011 2011

Comparability — France [top]

France reorganized its level 1 geography in 2016, and changed its coding structure completely in NUTS2. These changes are reflected in the new ENUTS2_2016 variable.

The 2011 sample includes overseas regions (Guadeloupe, Martinique, Guyane, and La Reunion), which are not available in earlier French samples. The sample is, however, missing data for Mayotte, as it was only fully integrated into France in 2014.

Comparability — Greece [top]

Greece changed its boundaries for ENUTS2 in 2013. The new boundaries and codes are reflected in the NUTS_2013 variable.

Comparability — Ireland [top]

Ireland changed its boundaries and coding structure for NUTS2 in 2016. These changes are reflected in the ENUTS2_2013 variable.

Only the 2016 Ireland sample contained sufficient geographic detail to be integrated into ENUTS2_2013

Comparability — Italy [top]

Two units have been combined with its neighbor because they could not be separated in the data. The units include, ITC1 / Piemonte + ITC2 / Valle d'Aosta/Vallée d'Aoste (#380031) and ITH1 / Provincia Autonoma di Bolzano/Bozen + ITH2 / Provincia Autonoma di Trento (#380081)

Comparability — Poland [top]

Poland's labelling and coding structure for NUTS was changed in 2016, and ENUTS2_2013 reflects these changes.

A new NUTS2 region, Warszawski stołeczny, was created from Mazowiecki regionalny, in 2016. Our data does not, however, contain enough geographic detail to separate these units, so they are combined in ENUTS2_2013.

Comparability — Portugal [top]

Several of Portugal's NUTS2 regions changed Names in 2013, and these changes are reflected in ENUTS2_2013. PT17 / Área Metropolitana de Lisboa + PT16 / Centro (#620017) have been combined because they could not be separated in the data.
