    In Europe, about 72% of the population lives in urban areas (UAs), and the proportion is predicted to rise to 77% by 2025.1 The United Nations Population Fund alluded to the beginning of ‘an urban millennium’ with over 50% of the world’s population living in UAs by 2008.2 Conditions of life and the health of the population differ between urban and rural regions within a country. It is known, e.g. that the prevalence of obesity is increasing worldwide and the dietary changes that are associated with urbanization are highly significantly implicated in this.3Despite this, a monitoring of urban health is still lacking and not much is known about the particular aspects of health in UAs of Europe. There is a need for tools which enable health politicians to understand the determinants of health and to assess and influence health service provision in cities. Because this situation is shared across the European Union, the EU Public Health Programme Workplan of 2005 identified the developmen...

    Three different approaches were taken to identify existing definitions of UAs and to verify which of these are prevalent in the existing projects’ descriptions. First, a literature search was performed from different points of view, such as geography, statistics, administration and spatial structure. Furthermore, studies looking at ‘what is urban’ were compiled. Search terms were used in varying combinations, e.g. ‘urban’, ‘area’, ‘definition’, ‘health’ and ‘audit’. The search term ‘Europe’ was included to identify specifically European projects that were of relevance. The search was performed using PubMed and included articles from 1998 to the then current date, 2006. Direct searches on the Internet were also performed using the same search criteria. Second, as a further way of gathering information, experts in regional planning within European states were informed about the objectives of EURO-URHIS and were asked to identify some UAs in their countries. With a short questionnaire,...

    The definitions found were categorized into those which are generally defined and used internationally, those based on objective criteria which are valid only in a national context and the subjective selections which lack a formal definition. General definitions are used by the UN to categorize cities by their number of inhabitants (table 1). Geographers describe UAs using indicators for population numbers and density. They also take into account the centrality of a city for the surrounding areas with respect to, e.g. public transport and/or industrial importance. The identification can also be based on the distance between the houses. Definitions based on administrative boundaries are available for Europe from the European Statistical Office. National definitions rely mainly on the number of inhabitants, but the minimum number of people that defines a city differs between countries. Those definitions are also used by UN and the World Health Organization (WHO). Subjective definition...

    Our literature search came up with the result that no general definition of an UA exists but that every field of research has its own definition according to the interests and the study questions. Furthermore, none of the definitions found were applicable to the aims of EURO-URHIS. Geographical approaches lack a link to administrative boundaries and therefore would make it very difficult to collect health data. Statistical approaches only concentrate on cities and may miss agglomerations which form an UA. An ideal definition on areas for urban health would have to include some properties which are contradictory. As we were looking for health aspects of an urban population, we would have liked to include population density as well as social criteria like higher percentages of elderly people and people living alone as well as structural indicators like public transport, density of physicians and hospitals. These requirements would best be fulfilled by a definition used by geographers....

    This research project was co-funded by EU Commission, under the Community Action in the Field of Public Health (HD2005/3.3.1/2003-2008) as part of the EURO-URHIS project (grant agreement no. 205119) and the project beneficiaries. Conflicts of interest: None declared.

    We are grateful for the help provided by the EURO-URHIS project teams in each of the beneficiaries’ institutions. (Full details of all project partners can be found on http://urhis.eu/euro-urhis1/.)

  6. Mar 01, 2017 · An Area = 4 metres squared. 4 metres x 4 metres. 16 square metres. So if someone asks you the correct area of the room mentioned above, you should say that the area is 4 square metres both of which are correct answers. But beware more confusion arises as 1 m x 1 m= 1 square metres while 1 metre squared is also the same size as 1 × 1 = 1.
