Abstract

On one hand, better and better databases occur through the world, however for cities a lot of important data is unavailable. On the other hand, the cities are one of the most important units, where transportation interactions ought to be analyzed. In this recent paper the order of the cities (based upon the NUTS – Nomenclature des unités territoriales statistiques classification) will be introduced, and an answer will be found for the question whether this parameter could be used as a substitution of an economic parameter.
