Notes

HESA Guidance

This coding frame is determined by the National Statistics Country Classification 2006 (NSCC), which is based on ISO 3166-1 Codes for the Representation of Names of Countries and their Subdivisions, and the United Nations' Standard Country or Area Codes for Statistical Use. In a small number of cases, the NSCC usage differs from the usage in ISO 3166 on which the NSCC is based. Where that happens, the ISO 3166 usage is given in brackets after the preferred UK usage, to facilitate cross-reference to the international standard. For example for code KP the description is Korea (South). The text in brackets, [Korea, Republic of], is the ISO 3166 description.

AX: The Åland Islands

The Åland Islands {also known as Ahvenamaa}.

CD: Congo

Congo (Democratic Republic) [Congo (The Democratic Republic of the)] {formerly known as Zaire}.

FR: France

France {includes Corsica}.

IT: Italy

Italy {Includes Sardinia, Sicily}.

PS: Occupied Palestinian Territories

Occupied Palestinian Territories [Palestine, State of] {formerly known as West Bank (including East Jerusalem) and Gaza Strip}.

PT: Portugal

Portugal {includes Madeira, Azores}.

ES: Spain

Spain {includes Ceuta, Melilla}.

XY: At Sea

XY 'At Sea' is included for the purpose of recording a destination in international waters, which is not recognised as the territorial waters of a listed country. It should not be used as a proxy for not known, and it is not expected that this code will be frequently used. Code XY is an NSCC code used for purposes where existing ISO-3166 codes are inappropriate.

EU, XP-XX, ZZ: Obsolete Countries, Regions, Stateless, and Unknown

The regional codes EU and XP to XX may be used if information is known only to this level of accuracy, in preference to using ZZ which should be a last resort. EU should be used in preference to XP if appropriate.

Change management notesThe valid entry SZ Swaziland has been updated to 'Eswatini' and MK Macedonia [Macedonia, The Former Yugoslav Republic of] has been updated to 'North Macedonia'.
