Regional breakdown

In order to advance the adjustment to the regional policy of the European Union, the system of planning-statistical regions was worked out. It was enforced by Act XCII of 1999 and LXXV of 2003 modifying Act XXI of 1996 on Regional Development and Regional Planning. These regions represent the second level of NUTS (Nomenclature of Territorial Units for Statistics).

We would like to inform our kind users that the territorial code system was modified on 1 January 2018 (Decree No. 39/2017. (XII. 27.) of the Minister of Prime Minister’s Office, amending Decree No. 31/2011 (X. 24.) of the Minister of Public Administration and Justice on the territorial registration identification code system entered into force). The modification was justified by international and national legislative changes, in accordance with which several territorial classifications have been modified. In view of user needs, new nomenclatures have also been incorporated into the territorial code system. Based on the changes, Budapest and Pest county are also planning and statistical regions, while Central Hungary became exclusively a statistical large region.
