Geo Note: Netherlands - NUTS 2016 Metropolitan Regions
Thursday, 09 Apr 2020 08:47 ET
By Elizabeth Felton
Summary
December 2019 -- Between NUTS 2013 and 2016, for metropolitan regions for the Netherlands, Eurostat replaced four and added four (8 new, 4 retired geo codes).
Detail

Introduction

Eurostat defines a metropolitan region as an aggregate of one or more contiguous NUTS 3 areas that represents an agglomeration of at least 250,000 inhabitants and includes the commuter belt around a city. We have organized the official information into coherent lists ("geo code vintages"), which you can use to answer questions like "at time T, what are the component NUTS 3 areas N of metropolitan region M?" We account for these possible circumstances:

  1. The boundaries of an existing area change, but its name is retained: Replace the area by declaring a new geo code, and substitute into the "after" vintage.
  2. A new area is created, usually in conjunction with the redefinition of an existing area: Declare a new geo code, and add to the "after" vintage.
  3. An existing area is terminated, usually because it has fissioned: Retire the geo code from the "after" vintage.

Note that an area (hence geo code) may continue to be used for statistics even after it has been terminated as an administrative entity. We do not double-guess our historical sources.
