Degree of Urbanisation (DEGURBA) - Statistics Denmark, v1:2007

Name:

Degree of Urbanisation (DEGURBA) - Statistics Denmark, v1:2007

Description:

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:

  • 1: Densely populated areas
  • 2: Intermediate density areas
  • 2.1: Intermediate density areas, at least 40,000 inhabitants in the largest city in the municipality
  • 2.2: Intermediate density areas, between 15,000 and 40,000 inhabitants in the largest city in the municipality
  • 2.3: Intermediate density areas, less than 15,000 inhabitants in the largest city in the municipality
  • 3: Thinly populated areas
  • 3.1: Thin populated areas, at least 15,000 inhabitants in the largest city in the municipality
  • 3.2: Thinly populated areas, less than 15,000 inhabitants in the largest city in the municipality

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.
