In the 2003 version, North Eastern Scotland (which then included part of Moray) was coded UKM1, and Highlands and Islands was coded UKM4.

The current NUTS level 1 codes start with "C" (following "UK") rather than "1" because the new list reflected the revised regions of England and local government changes throughout the UK; "1" to "B" had been used for the 11 regions in the previous coding system.

In 2010

  • UKD2 was replaced by UKD6 (Cheshire) and UKD5 was replaced by UKD7 (Merseyside), due to the transfer of Halton to the Merseyside NUTS region from Cheshire
  • UKE43 (Calderdale, Kirklees and Wakefield) was replaced by UKE44 (Calderdale and Kirklees) and UKE45 (Wakefield)
  • UKF23 (Northamptonshire) was replaced by UKF24 (West Northamptonshire) and UKF25 (North Northamptonshire)
  • UKG34 (Dudley and Sandwell) was replaced by UKG36 (Dudley) and UKG37 (Sandwell)
  • UKG35 (Walsall and Wolverhampton) was replaced by UKG38 (Walsall) and UKG39 (Wolverhampton).
  • Bedfordshire CC UKH22 was replaced by UKH24 (Bedford) and UKH25 (Central Bedfordshire)

Local administrative units

Below the NUTS levels, the two LAU (Local Administrative Units) levels are:

Level Subdivisions #
LAU 1 Lower tier authorities (districts) or individual unitary authorities (England and Wales);
Individual unitary authorities or LECs (or parts thereof) (Scotland);
Districts (Northern Ireland)
415
LAU 2 Wards (or parts thereof) 10400

The two LAU levels are maintained by the UK Office for National Statistics within the ONS coding system.
