Abstract

Population density data are available to the European Commission at the level of the commune. The size of communes is very heterogeneous across the EU. Hence this level of spatial resolution may be insufficient in many cases for planning or modelling purposes or to assess the impact of EU policies. Data per commune cannot give a suitable answer to many policy questions. This paper presents a method to combine population data per commune with a land cover map to produce a more detailed population density map.
