Four levels of harmonised NUTS (0, 1, 2, 3) geometries for the corresponding NUTS version (2003, 2006, 2010, 2013 and 2016) are provided. These NUTS geometries are based on the aggregation of simplified delineation of European local administrative units (LAUs), ensuring an appropriate degree of generalisation.
