Population in the STRING region

  Graf 5 - Population



Graf 2.4 a - Population


Hamburg, Copenhagen and Malmö are the most populated cities in the STRING area. The administrative areas with least inhabitants are to be found in the north eastern part of Scania.


Graf 2.4b - Population


Population density is highest in and around the big cities in the STRING area, Copenhagen, Hamburg and Malmö. Especially the north eastern part of Scania is very sparsely populated.  


Graf 2.6 - Population


Children and teenagers (0-19 years old) amount to a larger share of the population in the Scandinavian part of the STRING area than in the German part. In both Copenhagen and Hamburg the share of children and teenagers is low. One explanation is that people tend to move out of the big cities when they have children.



Graf 2.7 - Population


The young people (20-29 years old) live mainly in large cities with universities and other institutions of higher education, such as Copenhagen, Malmö, Lund, Flensburg and Hamburg.


Graf 2.8 a - Popluation


Graf 2.8 b - Population


People in the working age (30-59 years old) live mainly in the areas around the region's strongest concentrations of economic activity. The part of the region with the lowest share of people in the working age is in Scania and primarily in the north eastern part.


Graf 2.9 - Population


People aged 60 years or more amount to a high share of the population in the peripheral and coastal areas. The Danish and Swedish parts of the region have a lower share of elderly people than the German part.


Graf 10- Population


Population projections for the STRING area show an ageing population, especially in the Danish and German parts. In all parts of the region the economically important group aged 20-59 will amount to a smaller part of the population in the future.
