Warning: these figures indicate the number of cases found in the data file. They cannot be interpreted as summary statistics of the population of interest.
EBPLNT1 indicates the NUTS1 region in which the person was born. The Nomenclature of Territorial Units for Statistics (NUTS) is a standard administrative division of the European Union, and was developed by the EU. The European Free Trade Association extends the NUTS system to several additional countries outside of the EU, and they are also incorporated into this variable. NUTS1 identifies the largest territorial units within countries.
EBPLNT1 only identifies regions within the person's country of residence; it does not identify birthplaces of international migrants.
The code labels include the standard code for the NUTS1 system and the name of the NUTS1 region, separated by a slash.
