Eurostat does not publish gross value added data, but instead publishes data for gross domestic product (GDP) for all regions and sub-regions in the European Union (EU). For the current round of structural funds, areas in receipt of convergence objective funding—the highest level of funding—were defined as those NUTS 2 regions with GDP per capita less than 75 per cent. of the EU average, expressed in terms of purchasing power parities (PPP), using the average of data for the years 2000, 2001 and 2002.

The latest data available at NUTS 2 (sub-regional) level from Eurostat are for the year 2004. The following table shows all NUTS 2 regions in the EU with GDP per capita in 2004 less than 75 per cent. of the EU average, including all 27 current member states, in terms of PPP.
