40 Geographic unit - Germany

Have there been any changes in the region variable (REGIONxx) since the last round?No
Statistical inference possible at the regional level:No
Is your country part of the NUTS nomenclature or Eurostat's statistical regions for EFTA and Candidate countries?Yes

Suggested grouping of the regional categories:

In ESS round 9, there has been no oversampling for respondents from East Germany (former GDR), so that a grouping of regional units for East and West Germany is no longer suggested (as has been the case in previous rounds of the ESS). The sample was drawn to be representative of Germany as a whole, without any sub-national grouping of regions.
