the map file format SPSS uses is the MapInfo format. The ESRI site gves
you access to free borderline files with the NUTS 2 level regions you
seek but you have to translate the more generic file formats the ESRI
site offers into the mapinfo format. This is where the real difficulty
lies. To find such a file format converter you should ask a discussion
group on geographic information systems.
I have not tried the following way but I guess it might work: Excel map
files are also in MapInfo format. So if you have access to excel files
for the countries you want to cover you might try to import them.
