The settlement value is an indicator that shows how many housing units statistically make up a building in a geographical unit. The settlement value helps to differentiate rural from urban regions, which can be derived in particular from the share of multi-family or multi-party houses in the overall infrastructure, since rural areas are much more strongly characterised by single-family houses, whereas cities consist almost entirely of multi-party houses. Differences within districts are particularly exciting to evaluate in this respect, as they allow conclusions to be drawn about the social and economic situation in a region. In addition, the type of settlement is also particularly dependent on the local legal situation and prices, which can vary greatly even in the smallest of spaces, which is why there are sometimes considerable differences between neighbouring communities and districts.
Similio offers numerous Settlement comparisons with interactive maps. There is a separate map for each Austrian municipality. Further maps for Settlement are available at the level of political districts, landscapes, regions and at the level of federal provinces.
