A reference point for those looking for valuable data at a regional level, Regional Statistics MALTA 2023 Edition continues on the previous editions presenting regional statistics on diverse socio-economic and environmental aspects.
The publication focuses mainly on developments in the Gozo and Comino region and compares these developments with other statistics produced for the other five districts on the mainland. Eight statistical domains, namely, demography, education, labour market, economy, transport, tourism, agriculture and fisheries, and resources, are once again looked into, thus providing continuity from previous editions.
Most of the results presented in this publication were compiled using harmonised and consistent methodologies that allow for comparisons to be made both longitudinally and cross-sectionally at national and district levels. As such, users can observe trends over the years, analysing changes occurring in the socio-economic scenario in Malta, and Gozo and Comino.
