Map of the month August: International Youth Day
On the occasion of the International Youth Day, which takes place on 12 August, we take a statistical look at the allocation of “youth” population in the year 2021. From a statistical point of view, “youth” is expressed as population aged 15 to 24 years. A higher percentage of youth can be seen in the Hungarian part of Centrope as well as in the West of Lower Austria and in Vysočina. Burgenland and the Western part of Bratislavský kraj (adjacent to the Austrian border) have a slightly lower percentage of people in youth age. 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.
