Database for Policy Makers

Rural, mountainous, sparsely or highly populated – regions have different opportunities and challenges. Decision-makers need reliable data to plan successful development.

The ESPON Database provides comparable indicators covering all regions of Europe. It supports better understanding of past and future trends in different types of European territories and makes possible to benchmark your region and city in the European context.

It provides access to regional, local, urban, neighbourhood, world, grid and historical data. Users can focus their search using the categories “Theme”, “Policy”, “Project” and “Keyword”.

For a deeper understanding of the preparation of the data, technical reports are provided by ESPON. The Database provides all the information a policy maker needs for evidence-informed decision-making.
