Quelles frontières pour Bruxelles ? Une mise à jour

By Claire Dujardin, Isabelle Thomas and Henry Tulkens

Abstract

The goal of this study is to propose a method for determining the limits of the Brussels urban agglomeration. The method is inspired by a review of the criteria used by national statistical institutes in several countries and based on a limited set of simple and easily available statistical indicators. We define the Brussels agglomeration as a group of municipalities that are densely populated or have an important concentration of jobs, and exhibit a strong functional dependence with the Brussels-Capital region, i.e. a high rate of commuting trips towards this region. According to this census-based definition, the Brussels agglomeration includes a constant core of 31 municipalities in 1991 and 2001. An additional municipality was included in the agglomeration in 1991 but not in 2001, indicating a small shrinking of the agglomeration.urban agglomeration, Brussels, urban geography
