Definition: Geographical Location of the Accident

Social statistics

The variable geographical location is considered to be the territorial unit where the accident has occurred. The specified level for the NUTS classification in Appendix B should be used (NUTS 95 version, including the 1998 revision for Finland, Sweden and UK and the pseudo-NUTS classification for EFTA countries). This classification describes the country in question and the defined regions in this country.
