Collection: LUISA : Land-Use based Integrated Sustainability Assessment modelling platform 

Description

Historical population data from 1961 to 2011, based on a project supported by the Directorate-General for Regional and Urban Policy (see Gløersen and Lüer, 2013, population data collection for European local administrative units from 1960 onwards).  It contains population estimates that are not necessarily consistent with the official Eurostat figures and other projections. The data is originally available at LAU2 level and can be downloaded from Eurostat webpage. LUISA has aggregated the LAU2 level data by functional urban areas and metropolitan regions.
