Gebietsabgrenzung / Definition of sub-city districts

The definition of the sub-city districts has not been harmonised, however certain guidelines were adopted.

  • Sub-city districts shall be defined for all capital cities and for non-capital cities with more than 250 000 inhabitants at the core city level.
  • The definition of sub-city districts for non-capital cities with less than 250 000 inhabitants at the core city level is optional.
  • Sub-city districts should have a population between 5 000 and 40 000.
  • Sub-city districts shall be internally homogenous in terms of social structure and built environment as far as possible.
  • In several large cities a subdivision of cities already exists but the units are larger in terms of population then the above mentioned requirement. In these cases an additional sub-city district level can be defined, which corresponds to the established city districts.
  • Based on the above sub-city districts can be defined at two levels. Sub city districts level 1 corresponds to the established city districts and level 2 follows the population criteria.
  • For most cities only level 2 is defined while for some cities both level 1 and 2 are defined.
  • If deemed necessary it is possible to define a sub-city district without territory (unknown sub-city district). This can be used for adjustments in calculating totals of all sub-city districts).
  • The territory not covered by a City but covered by a Greater City can also be divided into sub-city districts. The same guidelines apply as above.
