Eurostat regional statistics contain country, and various regional level information. In many cases, for example, when mapping, it is useful to filter out national level data from NUTS2 level regional data, for example.

add_nuts_level(dat, geo_labels = "geo")

Arguments

dat

A data frame or tibble returned by get_eurostat.

geo_labels

A geographical label, defaults to geo.

Value

a new numeric variable nuts_level with the numeric value of NUTS level 0 (country), 1 (greater region), 2 (region), 3 (small region).
