The establishment of statistical classifications and nomenclatures aims at ensuring longitudinal and geographical comparability and coherence among national, European and international statistics. Statistical classifications and nomenclatures provide a framework for the presentation of statistics in a harmonized form, thus facilitating their comparison.
ELSTAT presents the basic national statistical classifications which are linked to the relevant European or international ones.
More information on the European and international classifications can be found on Eurostat’s Metadata Server (RAMON)
