Degree of Urbanization (DEGURBA) is a classification that divides municipalities by population density and the number of inhabitants in the largest city in the municipality. The classification is based on Eurostat's [Degree of Urbanization (DEGURBA)] (https://ec.europa.eu/eurostat/web/degree-of-urbanisation/background). As a supplement to Eurostat's DEGURBA, Statistics Denmark has, for use in Danish context, made a subdivision of Intermediate density areas and Thinly populated areas by number of inhabitants in largest city in the municipality, see below:
In the event that the municipality's largest city spreads over several municipalities (e.g. Birkerød), only those who live in the municipality are included in the determination of the municipality's largest city.
