Share of NUTS-3 region territories overlaid by Inner Peripheries at grid level (in %).
In a first step, car travel times from each grid cell to the closest general hospital have been calculated. Then, these travel times have been standardized at the average of the neighbouring NUTS3 regions. After 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.
