#### Abstract

The Euclidean concentration inequality states that, among sets with fixed volume, balls have $r$-neighborhoods of minimal volume for every $r \gt 0$. On an arbitrary set, the deviation of this volume growth from that of a ball is shown to control the square of the volume of the symmetric difference between the set and a ball. This estimate is sharp and includes, as a special case, the sharp quantitative isoperimetric inequality proved in “The sharp quantitative isoperimetric inequality” [N. Fusco, F. Maggi, and A. Pratelli, *Ann. Math.,* 168:941–980, 2008].
