Which EU region has the highest population density and which has the lowest? In which EU region do households use the internet the most? Which region has the highest proportion of the population who have completed tertiary education?
The answers to these questions and many more are found in the 2009 regional yearbook1 from Eurostat, the Statistical Office of the European Communities.
The publication gives an overview of the most recent economic, social and demographic developments in the 271 regions2 of the 27 Member States of the European Union as well as, when available, regions in the three candidate countries (Croatia, the former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia and Turkey) and the four EFTA countries (Iceland, Liechtenstein, Norway and Switzerland).
