New Eurostat-EU Study - Urban Audit
Urban Audit is a joint project by EUROSTAT and the European Commission which aims to provide comparable information on selected urban areas in the 25 member states of the EU, Bulgaria and Romania with a view to asses the quality of life in European cities.
Urban Audit releases now the results of a study of 258 large and medium-sized European cities, covering socio-economic aspects, participation in civic life, education and training, environment, as well as culture and leisure. Cultural indicators refer to available facilities and cultural consumption; the study identified for example large differences in the number of cinema seats per inhabitant.
