Predicted and observed values of effective mesh density according to the pan‑European predictive model
The model inludes all 10 predictor variables for all NUTS-X regions in Europe, using a square root transformation for seff and PD. The NUTS-X regions represented by points above the diagonal line are more fragmented than predicted (e.g. FR107 Val
de Marne) and those represented by points below the diagonal line are less fragmented than predicted (e.g. CH04 Zurich).
(The five NUTS-X regions with seff > 1 000 meshes per 1 000 km2 were excluded from the analysis: FR101 Paris, FR105
Hauts‑de‑Seine, FR106 Seine-Saint-Denis, UKI1 Inner London, BE10 Région de Bruxelles-Capitale.)
