The functional urban areas identified with the methodology described in the book Redefining “urban”: A new way to measure metropolitan areas, OECD Publishing 2012 are here listed by size, according to four classes:
– small urban areas, with population between 50,000 and 200,000
– medium-sized urban areas, with population between 200,000 and 500,000
– metropolitan areas, with population between 500,000 and 1,5 million
– large metropolitan areas, with population above 1.5 million
Each functional urban area is an economic unit characterised by densely inhabited “city core” and “commuting zone” whose labour market is highly integrated with the cores.
