Regional Atlas - Settlement groups, agglomerations, agglomerating areas

The phenomenon of agglomeration is well depicted in the settlement structure in Hungary. The present delimitation of urban settlement groups was carried out by the Hungarian Central Statistical Office in August 2003. According to this there are 21 urban settlement groups in the area of the country. The urban settlement groups can be classified into 3 types: agglomerations, agglomerating areas and settlement groups. These denominations refer to the degree of interconnections among the settlements involved. The settlements of the Budapest agglomeration are listed in Act LXIV of 2005.
