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.

In Finland the declining and ageing society is usually seen as a serious problem with negative consequences. Therefore a strong change in attitudes is needed. When facing challenges, the North Karelia has already several times assumed the role of forerunner. Once again we need to review new structures, models and tools, as well as find innovative solutions aiming to improve tomorrow's prerequisite for living and working in our region. The main concern of the DART project is highly topical and any outcomes of fruitful European collaboration are warmly welcomed.
