Yorkshire and the Humber is one of nine official regions of England at the first level of Nomenclature of Territorial Units for Statistics (NUTS) for statistical purposes. It comprises most of Yorkshire (the administrative areas of South Yorkshire, West Yorkshire, East Riding of Yorkshire, Hull, North Yorkshire and the City of York), as well as North Lincolnshire and North East Lincolnshire. Middlesbrough, Redcar and Cleveland or other areas of the historic county of Yorkshire, are not included. The largest settlements are Leeds, Sheffield, Bradford, Hull, and York. The population in 2011 was 5,284,000.[1]

The committees for the regions, including the one for Yorkshire and the Humber, ceased to exist upon the dissolution of Parliament on 12 April 2010; they were not re-established by the newly elected House.[2] Regional ministers were not reappointed by the incoming Coalition Government, and the Government Offices were abolished in 2011.

Due to British vote to exit of the EU in 2016, NUTS regions waned in importance. By 2021 (set leaving date to take effect when the year begins), using NUTS regions all together will become unoffical with British regulators choosing to adopt or create new statistical divisioning of England.
