A dataset containing the correspondence table between the EU NUTS 2016 typology and the typology used by Google in the Google Mobility Reports.
A data frame with 817 rows and 6 variables:
ISO 3166-1 alpha2 code
Hierarchical level in the Google Mobility Reports
The name used by Google.
NUTS code in the 2016 definition
country, NUTS1, NUTS2 or NUTS3, nuts_level_3_lau, nuts_level_3_iso-3166-2
Logical variable, if the coding is valid in NUTS2016
In some cases only a full correspondence is not possible. In these
cases we created pseudo-NUTS codes, which have a
valid_2016 value. These pseudo-NUTS codes can help
approximation for the underlying regions.
Pseudo-NUTS codes were used in Estonia, Italy, Portugal, Slovenia and in parts of Latvia.
In Latvia and Slovenia, the pseudo NUTS code is a combination of the the containing NUTS3 code and the municipality's LAU code.
In Estonia, they are a combination of the NUTS3 code and the
ISO-3166-2 LAU code (county level.) This is the case in most of
Portugal and the United Kingdom, too. In these cases the pseudo-codes refer to a
quasi-NUTS4 code, which are smaller than the containing NUTS3 region,
therefore they should be aggregated.
A special case is
ITD_IT-32, which is is a combination
of two NUTS2 statistical regions, but it forms under the
ITD_IT-32 a single unit, the autonomous region of
Trentino and South Tyrol. In this case, they should be disaggregated.
A similar solution is required for the United Kingdom.
