Official administrative divisions are often insufficiently precise, particularly for marketing purposes or locational analysis. It is often more meaningful in this regard to examine areas that are comparable in terms of population density, structure and, ideally, consumer behaviour.
For many countries worldwide no such statistical regions exist. In these cases we can normally help you by providing a specific combination of administrative boundaries in addition to statistical data such as census counts. Information regarding data availability for a variety of countries can be found using our country search feature.
