This paper sets out a regionalization of Austria into functional urban regions, each of which consists of an urban core(s) of at least 50,000 population and/or 20,000 jobs and the surrounding hinterland that is economically linked to the urban cores through commuting flows. The regionalization is based primarily on population and commuting data for 1971 and, to a lesser extent, on the geographical orientation of major highway networks. These functional urban regions are to serve as the spatial bases of data collection and of forthcoming analyses of demographic and employment change during the 1950-60 and 1960-70 periods in Austria.
