EU Regional GDP statistics published

Eurostat (the statistical office of the EU) has published the GDP figures according to regions in 2013.

GDP per capita provides a measure of the total economic activity in a region.

According to the 2013 statistics, Inner London scored highest in the European Union, its GDP score was 325% of the EU average. Among the regions with the lowest GDP in England were Tees Valley & Durham, South Yorkshire, Lincolnshire, Cornwall and Isles of Scilly.

This regional GDP data is used (based on a three-year average) to determine the ‘category of support’ that regions qualify for under the EU Structural Funds and the regional aid maps for state aids.

However, the reference period used for the 2014-2020 European Structural and Investment Funds Programme is 2007, 2008 and 2009 regional data, following the agreement on the Multi-annual Financial Framework 2014-2020 that was reached in European Council on 8 February 2013.
