Mapping population density


Additional information

Following discussions with the European Environment Agency in October 1998, a project was launched to investigate the feasibility of disaggregating population data, assigning different population densities according to the classes of Corine land cover. The population data, held at commune level, are available for base years 1981 and 1991 from Eurostat-GISCO.
The study is based on population statistics from 1991 and Corine Land Cover (CLC90)
Geographical coverage note: covers Western Germany only
