NUTS and ITL Data
Nomenclature of territorial units for statistics (NUTS) is a geographical system, divided into one of four levels based on geographic 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).
The levels are titled:
NUTS 0 (largest area)
NUTS 1 ITL 1
NUTS 2 ITL 2
NUTS 3 (smallest area) ITL 3
In England NUTS 3/ITL 3 regions are Counties or groups of unitary authorities, 179 areas in total.
Each NUTS/ITL region has a unique code, the length of which is dependent on the hierarchical level of the NUTS/ITL region illustrated below based on Leeds:
|Region||NUTS level (previous)||Code (previous)||ITL (current)|
|United Kingdom||NUTS 0||UK||TL|
|Yorkshire and the Humber||NUTS 1||UKE||TLE|
|West Yorkshire||NUTS 2||UKE4||TLE4|
