ARDECO - EU sub-state regional data

Annual Regional Database of the European Commission


Data description


The Annual Regional Database of the European Commission (ARDECO) is maintained by DG Regional and Urban Policy, with data from Eurostat, Cambridge Econometrics and other international sources.

ARDECO provides pan-European regional (sub-state) disaggregated data, covering multiple indicators of growth, convergence, competitiveness and demography. The database contains time-series indicators for EU sub-state regions, and some EFTA and candidate country regions at NUTS1, NUTS2 and NUTS3 statistical scales. Data is organised in four categories:

  • Demography
  • Labour Market
  • Capital Formation
  • Domestic Product.

The Eurostat Regional Yearbook is available at this link.


Time period
  • 1980-2023
  • ARDECO is updated twice per year, following the release of the EC ECFIN short-term economic forecasts (AMECO data, spring and autumn).
