What indicators define demographic change in European regions and are these comparable?
DART will deﬁne common indicators to measure demographic change and shrinkage in European regions in line with the Lisbon Strategy and its successor, Europe 2020. These indicators will allow the analysis and com-
parison of data from different regions.
The study on indicators and standards compared for the first time the demographic change with selected data from the DART partner regions on a NUTS 3 level.
Within the pilot action of the project a regional observation monitor was developed and political recommendations for better data were adopted. The DART Indicator Study is either available as short summary or as a complete study.
Below you can find a glossary of demographic indicators.
During the DART-Conference in Dresden "Demographic Change in Europe – Solutions for the Economy" in April 2011 first results of the indicator study were presented.
