Identification of NUTS3 regions as inner periphery with poor access to services-of-general-interest, as the combined results of Delineation 3.
Once NUTS-3 regions considered as inner peripheries for the individual SGIs have been identified, the individual SGI-specific results have been combined to identify NUTS-3 level inner peripheries for entire Delineation 3. As a final result of Delineation 3, NUTS-3 regions have been identified as inner peripheries if they (i) experience poor access to five or more SGIs, AND at the same time (ii) have poor access to hospitals OR poor access to primary schools OR poor acces to train stations.Detailed information on the delineation method can be found in Annex Report 4 of the ESPON PROFECY Final Report.

In a first step, car (or air) travel times from each grid cell to the closest <SGI point> have been calculated. Then, these travel times have been standardized at the average of the neighbouring NUTS3 regions. Ater that, all areas with a standardized indicator values of > 150 were considered inner peripheries at grid level. These areas were overlaid with NUTS-3 regions to calculate the share of NUTS3 regions overlaid by IP. Eventually,all NUTS-3 regions have been identified as Inner Peripheires whose territory was overlaid by IPs by at least 30%; in addition to this threshold, NUTS-3 regions have been identified as IP if they represent major IP patches at grid level, if the overlaid proportion is less than 30%.Detailed information on the delineation method can be found in Annex Report 4 of the ESPON PROFECY Final Report.
