As such, the upper age limit is usually set to 74 years (in contrast to the upper age range for the employment rate, which is generally set to 64 years). At least half of the resources associated with the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF) during the period 2014-2020 will be invested in urban areas. This pattern has led to the gentrification (displacement of lower-income families as a result of rising property prices) of some inner city areas and considerable changes in their demographic and social make-up.

Yet, there is often a paradox insofar as some cities also display very high levels of social exclusion, unemployment and income disparity, while some cities may be confronted by issues such as crime, traffic congestion or pollution. Aside from being the capital, Bratislava is also the tourism and cultural center in Slovakia. Other groups include Roma (2%), Czechs (0.6%), and Rusyns (0.6%), although unofficial estimates put the Roma population at 9%. The existence of greater opportunities for higher education and employment offered by many large cities might lead to a lower old-age dependency ratio.

Biggest Cities In Hungary The largest increase was recorded for the share of those aged 45-54 years. In Berlin: the share of the population aged 15-24 years, 35-44 years and 65-74 years all fell between 2007 and 2017, while the shares of all other age groups increased, most strongly in the age groups 75 years and over and 25-34 years.

Cities and urban areas are at the heart of the EU’s cohesion policy. One of the most striking aspects of the distribution of cities across some parts of the EU is their close proximity to each other: this can be seen over much of Belgium, the Netherlands, western parts of Germany, northern Italy and the southern half of the United Kingdom. These differences in spatial distribution may reflect levels of centralisation. In a majority of the eastern EU Member States, cities tended to outperform rural areas economically and record some of the highest rates of economic growth. In Sweden the employment rate for rural areas was the same as that for towns and suburbs. Note that the unemployment rate takes into account people who would like to (or have to) work after the age of 64 but are unable to find a job. As for the overall unemployment rate, Malta was the only southern Member State to report a rate for people living in cities that was below the EU-28 average. Detailed information concerning the definition of concepts for cities and other urban entities is provided in Chapter 3 of a methodological manual on territorial typologies. Population statistics presented in this chapter are principally based on cities, with some additional information for commuting zones — these are shown in Map 1. Regions & Major Cities.

The president appoints the Prime Minister, 3 constitutional court judges, and 3 judicial council members. Košice is the second-largest city with 355,047 residents. The growth rate near zero is expected to continue, but in the negative direction in the years to come, although it will not likely be any more drastic than the growth has been and the actual population numbers will not likely change very much. It is based on three pillars, namely, to deliver better regulation, better funding and better knowledge. Relatively few old persons living in satellite cities around the Spanish and French capitals. Slovakia. available to start work within the next two weeks (or has already found a job to start within the next three months); and. Map 3 complements Map 2, providing information on the old-age dependency ratio, in other words the ratio between the number of people aged 65 years and over and the number of people aged 20 to 64 years. The highest unemployment rate, by degree of urbanisation, was recorded for people living in cities (8.3 %), while somewhat lower rates were registered for those living in towns and suburbs (7.5 %) and rural areas (6.6 %). Northern EU Member States reported employment rates that were above the average for the whole of the EU-28 (72.1 %), with Sweden reporting the highest rate of all (81.8 %). By contrast, in nearly all of the eastern Member States, as well as in two of the Baltic Member States and three southern Member States (Cyprus, Spain and Italy) the highest employment rates in 2017 were recorded for cities. Slovak American Population Total population: 797,764 Median household income in 1999: 47,645 The states with the largest Slovak American populations include Pennsylvania (243,009), Ohio (157,125), New Jersey … Sweden. Within cities, all northern Member States reported relatively high employment rates and all southern Member States relatively low ones. Near the Hungarian border, Košice is located along the Hornád river near the Slovak Ore Mountains.
