Disposable income per capita

Disposable income is defined as the primary income (the income of private households generated directly from market transactions) adjusted for the difference between all social benefits (including transfers other than in kind) and the taxes on income and wealth (including the payment of social contributions and effect transfers). When divided by the regional population, the disposable income is called disposable income per capita.

Unemployment rate

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

Education attainments of the labour force

The education attainment of a member of the labour force refers to the maximum academic degree completed. For international comparisons, academic degrees are standardised by the ISCED classification. This ISCED classifies academic degrees in six groups (ISCED 0 to ISCED 6). For practical reasons, the ISCED classes are further grouped as primary, secondary and tertiary education. Primary education accounts for: ISCED 0 (Pre-primary education), ISCED 1 (Primary education), and ISCED 2 (Lower secondary education); Secondary education accounts for: ISCED 3 (Upper secondary education) and ISCED 4 (Post-secondary non-tertiary education); and Tertiary education accounts for: ISCED 5 (Tertiary-type of programmes), ISCED 6 (Advanced Research Qualifications).

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.
