Abstract [en]

The analysis of regional economic performance on the European area is from a national point of view a comparative decision making process. Heterogeneity between regions interferes with the reliability and validity of such studies. Therefore, a comparative framework for European regional studies related to regional disparities in a country is of critical importance. In this paper, a methodology is proposed to establish a typology which aims at making analysis of European regions more meaningful from a Swedish point of view. The established typology is founded on two continuous variables and one nominal variable and has been elaborated with a statistical clustering and classification process. The new typology comprises 39 European regions organized in six relatively homogenous regional families that can be used for analytical purposes.
