CoverCities in the World - A New Perspective on Urbanisation
OCDE Urban Studies, 2020

Cities are not only home to around half of the global population but also major centers of economic activity and innovation. Yet, so far there has been no consensus of what a city really is. Substantial differences in the way cities, metropolitan, urban, and rural areas are defined across countries hinder robust international comparisons and an accurate monitoring of SDGs. The report Cities in the World: A New Perspective on Urbanisation addresses this void and provides new insights on urbanisation by applying for the first time two new definitions of human settlements to the entire globe: the Degree of Urbanisation and the Functional Urban Area. Based on the definitions, the report presents new evidence of recent and future urbanisation trends and sheds light on the evolution of metropolitan areas around the globe. It examines whether and why quality of life differs between cities and other types of settlements. It analyses the relationship between economic development and the metropolitan system in countries around the world. Finally, it presents new evidence on the changing shape of cities and its impact on sustainability. The report demonstrates how globally consistent definitions of cities and metropolitan areas can contribute to more effective policy design. [+]

BannerComparando datos estadísticas de regiones y ciudades de modo sencillo (nueva herramienta)

Eurostat offers a wide range of web tools to make it easier to visualise statistical results. Showing data at a regional and local level is often a challenge, as the information available is vast and difficult to condense. That is why we have developed a tool called 'Regions and cities illustrated' to help you have an overview of the situation in your region compared to other regions in the EU in 2018 and over time. The visualisation tool is based on a live data feed, so it is continually using the latest data. It contains maps, graphs and an animated timeline together with separate tabs for regions, cities and territorial typologies. The two main scoreboards are inter-connected, so when you select a geographical area in the map it is also highlighted in the graph. You can now also customise the tool to suit your needs. [+]

This video from Eurostat is presenting some new online tools for visualising data for regions and cities. Meet Åsa Önnerfors, who is explaining the difference between the Statistical Atlas and Regions and Cities Illustrated by showing some of the functionalities and options available in the two tools. She is also presenting a mobile phone app developed especially for regional data, called My region (Eurostat, 9.10.2018)
