En este trabajo se utiliza la información estadística referente a los indicadores regionales, suministrada por Eurostat, para elaborar una clasificación y caracterizar el espacio socioeconómico europeo en base a los mencionados indicadores, que, como se sabe, se refieren básicamente a datos demográficos, de mercado de trabajo y producto interior bruto. Para conseguir tal objetivo, se realiza una aproximación metodológica en dos fases: en primer lugar se utiliza un análisis cluster, con los indicadores regionales más relevantes, para evaluar las posibilidades de clasificación y número de grupos a formar. En una segunda etapa, se aplica un análisis discriminante con un doble objetivo: evaluar la bondad de las distintas clasificaciones derivadas del método anterior y encontrar los indicadores más significativos para diferenciar los diferentes espacios socioeconómicos obtenidos. Por último, se analizan las características socioeconómicas de las distintas agrupaciones regionales obtenidas.
