When it comes to beer consumption in absolute numbers, China is the world's top ranking nation because of their population size. For a comparison, we need to look at the values per capita. In this ranking, two Centrope countries take the leading positions: on #1 the Czech Republic with 181.9 litres per capita and year, and on #2 Austria with 96.8 litres per capita and year. Slovakia ranks #9 with 81.7 litres per capita and year and Hungary is on #21 with 68.0 litres per capita and year.

Map of the month June 2023: International Children's Day
International Children's Day was first proclaimed in Geneva during the World Conference on Child Welfare 1925 and is now celebrated on 1 June in many countries in honour of children. On this occasion we take a look at the distribution of children (aged 14 or less) in the Centrope region. The map shows a remarkably high percentage of children in relation to the total population in the Bratislava region whereas Burgenland and the Hungarian part of Centrope have less children per total population. The situation in the Czech Republic is heterogeneous due to the small municipality size, but we can see a higher percentage of children in the greater metropolitan areas.The map is available through our geoportal map.centropemap.org.
CentropeMAP/STATISTICS is a cross-border information system and free geoportal of the Austrian Planning Association East (PGO) which gives planners, decision makers, researchers, teachers, students and everyone else interested a better overview of the Centrope region.
CentropeMAP is a geoportal connecting the region by collecting web map services from the partner countries. The services are brought together in a single map viewer and allow the user to experience a cross-border working area with dozens of data layers dealing with all topics which could be of interest for regional planners and similar professions. Layers are coming from the fields of biota, boundaries, elevation, imagery/base maps, inland waters, planning/cadastre, structure, and transportation.
CentropeSTATISTICS is the only available free web tool to visualise cross-border statistical data in its own connected geoportal allowing the user to influence the way of visualisation in multiple ways in the Centrope region. CentropeSTATISTICS can not only create maps, it also serves charts which are interactively created from the data in the cross-border database. For the Czech Republic, CentropeSTATISTICS does not only cover the Centrope county Jihomoravský, but also features data from the counties Vysočina and Jihočesky which are also adjacent or close to the Austrian border.
