This file contains categorisation data from the ERDF/ESF/Cohesion Fund programmes and in particular COMPARES PLANNED AMOUNTS TO IMPLEMENTED VALUES. The data will be updated regularly to reflect updated information transmitted. The implementation values are reported once a year by the 350+ programmes at end January. This dataset only contains data to end December 2016.
The planned data is provided in tables one for each priority axis (investment pillar) of each programme. The categorisation systems is defined in Implementing Regulation 215/2014 with 8 dimensions in total - http://eur-lex.europa.eu/legal-content/EN/TXT/?uri=CELEX%3A32014R0215. These dimension represent different ways of categorising the nature of the EU support (i.e. the intervention (activity) field, the form of finance, the territorial context, etc.). In the programme documents only 4 dimensions were encoded for ERDF/ Cohesion Fund while 5 dimensions were encoded for ESF and can be found in the dataset. Data on 3 other dimensions is only provided in the implementation reports - Location, Economic Dimension, ERDF/CF Thematic Objective - and therefore there is no planned amount to compare.
In analysing the content of the dataset the different dimension should be analysed separately as otherwise double counting of the financial amounts will occur.
A second dataset found here - https://cohesiondata.ec.europa.eu/EU-Level/ESIF-2014-2020-Categorisation-Crosscutting-Themes-/xns4-t7ym - provides a lookup table for understanding how the Commission uses the intervention field codes to look at cross cutting issues such as investments in "innovation", "enterprise support", etc. That lookup dataset also has the "climate change tracking" weightings and a similar weighting system for "biodiversity tracking".
