NUTS and ITL

Each NUTS/ITL region has a unique code.

Nomenclature of territorial units for statistics (NUTS) is a geographical system, divided into one of four levels based on geographical size.

 

This has since been updated for the UK with ITL (International Territorial Levels) which mirrors the pre-existing NUTS code to ensure alignment between UK and international standards. This transition has not changed the names of regions, or the areas covered by them; it is simply a change to the codes used (for example, UKC1 is now TLC1).
