STATISTICAL NEEDS FOR COMMUNITY
REGIONAL POLICY
Presented by: Directorate-General
for Regional Policy,
Commission of the European
Communi ties,
Brussels, Belgium. Statistical needs for Community regional policy
1. The development and strengthening of Community regional policy since the
mid seventies has created a considerable demand for regional statistics.
The purpose of this paper is to show the uses to which these statistics
are put in the various policy areas.
2. The Directorate General for Regional Policy has a number of distinct
functions. The most obvious of these is the management of the European
Regional Development Fund - both the quota and non-quota sections.
It also has responsibilities in relation to other financial instruments
- ECSC and EIB funds - as well as participation in the work of coordination
of all Community structural financial instruments for which the Task Force,
which reports directly to Mr. Giolitti, is responsible.
3. Linked to Fund management but covering the wider regional planning functions
is the development of the regional development programmes by the Member
States. These programmes and the back up statistical data which accompany
them provide the framework and reference points against which the grant
of Community regional aid can be assessed and also how national regional
aid policies are monitored.
4. A further area of Community regional policy is the assessment of the
impact on the regions of particular Community policies. These assessments
provide the basis both for attempting to modulate the appropriate Community
policies to take account of regional priorities and to show in what way the
specific Community actions financed from the non-quota section of the
Regional Fund might contribute to the smooth development of the relevant
Community policies (e.g. enlargement policy) or might mitigate the worst
effects on the regions of those policies (for example in the case of
restructuring of crisis sectors). - 2 -
5. From the point of view of demand for regional statistics, the most important
analytic task of the Directorate General for Regional Policy is the
preparation of the Periodic Report on the social and economic situation
of the regions of the Community. This Report was called for in Council
Resolution of 6 February 1979 and the first Periodic Report 'The Regions
of Europe' was sent to the Council in December 1980; the next report is
due to be completed for mid-1983.
6. On the basis of the Periodic Report, the Commission prepares Guidelines
on the priorities for Community regional policy and any necessary draft
legislation to implement those priorities. The \ew Guidelines of
July 1981 and the draft revision of the Regional Fund Regulation
represent the results of the review of Community regional policy which
followed the completion of the First Report.
7. In developing Community regional policy, DG XVI is concerned to answer
a number of questions, for which availability of regional statistics
can help find answers. Some of these are :
to what extent do regional disparities exist in the Community ?
what is the nature of the economic and social problem existing in
the weaker regions ?
what are the likely prospects of regional economic and social
development in the coming years?
- how are regional disparities affected by
economic developments generally,
national and Community policies?
