Geo Change: France - NUTS 2 (2016) level 2 areas [UPDATED]
Thursday, 16 Mar 2017 16:40 ET
By Phillip Thorne
Summary
March 2016 -- During 2015, France reorganized and reduced the number of "administrative regions," breaking the alignment with NUTS (2013) level 2 areas. To date, this has affected select demographic, employment and regional accounts datasets. We have defined new geo codes of the form IFRA_^^. [Updated March 16, 2017.]
Detail

Previously, the 27 NUTS 2 areas were based on the administrative regions. In this change, 16 of the regions were combined into seven, resulting in 18 administrative regions. Although Eurostat reporting uses NUTS areas, datasets published directly by INSEE use the national geographic classification. These areas are sometimes called "grandes régions," but that term appears to be generic.

Also, the name of region #24 has been changed, from "Centre" to "Centre-Val de Loire."

A concordance is attached. It provides the INSEE numeric codes and names for each area, and the Data Buffet geo codes; for completeness, it also shows the 11 unchanged regions.
