Functional urban areas by country

 

Developing a common definition of metropolitan areas increases international comparability of the economic, social and environmental performances of metropolitan areas. The OECD and the EU have developed  a harmonised definition of urban areas as "functional economic units".


The following profiles provide the functional urban areas of each country. The following information is included:

  • Map of the country with all the functional urban areas.
  • List of the functional urban areas by population size.
  • Population living in functional urban areas.
  • Methodological notes on data used.
  • Shapefiles of the metropolitan areas areas by country
