The East of England is one of nine official regions of England at the first level of NUTS for statistical purposes. It was created in 1994 and was adopted for statistics from 1999. It includes the ceremonial counties of Bedfordshire, Cambridgeshire, Essex, Hertfordshire, Norfolk and Suffolk. Essex has the highest population in the region.

Its population at the 2011 census was 5,847,000. The area is mostly low-lying, and the highest place is at Clipper Down at in the far south western corner of the region near to Ivinghoe Beacon in the Ivinghoe Hills. Bedford, Luton, Basildon, Peterborough, Southend-on-Sea, Norwich, Ipswich, Colchester,Chelmsford and Cambridge are the region's most populous urban areas. The southern part of the region lies in the London commuter belt.

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