OECD Regions at a Glance

Index

    GDP per capita

    The Gross Domestic Product (GDP) is the standard measure of the value of the production activity (goods and services) of resident producer units. Regional GDP is measured according to the definition of the System of National Accounts (SNA). The GDP per capita is the GDP divided by the regional population. The GDP has been deflated and expressed in millions of USD using the 2000 PPP rate.

    Labour force

    The labour force is the sum of the numbers of persons (from 15 years old and over) employed and unemployed.

    Unemployment

    The unemployed comprise all persons above a specified age, who during the reference period were: a) without work, i.e. were not in paid employment or self-employment during the reference period, b) currently available for work, i.e. were available for paid employment or self-employment during the reference period, c) seeking work, i.e. had taken specific steps in a specified recent period to seek paid employment or self-employment.

    Unemployment rate

    The unemployment rate is the ratio between the unemployed and the labour force.

    Employment rate

    Employment rates are computed as the ratio between employees and working age population (15 - and 64 years old).

    OECD Regions

    Regions in OECD Member Countries have been classified according to two territorial levels (TL). The higher level (Territorial Level 2) consists of about 362 macro-regions while the lower level (Territorial Level 3) is composed of 1794 micro-regions.This classification - which, for European countries, is largely consistent with the Eurostat classification - facilitates greater comparability of regions at the same territorial level. The differences with the Eurostat NUTS classification concern Belgium, Greece and the Netherlands where the NUTS 2 level correspond to the OECD TL3 and Germany where the NUTS1 corresponds to the OECD TL2 and the OECD TL3 corresponds to 97 spatial planning regions (Groups of Kreise). For the United Kingdom the Eurostat NUTS1 corresponds to the OECD TL2. An OECD metropolitan region typically consists of a core area with significant concentration of employment or population and a surrounding area densely populated and closely tied with the core. There are currently 90 metropolitan regions in the OECD, which are the aggregation of TL3 regions based on population density, size and commuting criteria.
