Nordregio Regional potential index 2017 - Measuring Regional Potential

The ranking process undertaken here aims to illuminate the socio-economic state of the Nordic regions. This ranking is constructed around several of the socio-economic indicators used in this report (themes 1, 2 and 3). A careful selection of the indicators enables us to generate a broader, more synthesised idea of the socio-economic development of all 74 administrative regions making up the Nordic Region with the resulting ranking enhancing the possibilities for comparison among these regions. This is the second time that Nordregio has produced this ranking for the Nordic Region, making it possible to see the changes that have occurred between 2015 and 2017.
