"Through graphics and text, the Eurostat regional yearbook 2009 paints a statistical portrait of life in the regions of the European Union's member states, candidate countries and the EFTA countries. Its 13 chapters are written by specialists and presented in a language accessible to all. The book gives an ideal opportunity to assess the progress made so far in regional policy programmes recently launched as part of the EU's new cohesion policy. The latest results from the Urban Audit provide a snapshot of city life across the regions"
