What is it?
The residents of the municipality, which in this case is Eindhoven, are divided into nine clusters based on various characteristics. Together, these clusters constitute a detailed account of the diversity of Eindhoven’s residents. The municipality of Eindhoven and CBS have jointly conducted a statistical cluster analysis on all Eindhoven residents aged 16 and over. Through close collaboration and an iterative process, a division was made into nine clusters of residentsbased on 25 demographic and socioeconomic characteristics. The report provides a comprehensive statistical description of the individual clusters and shows their mutual connection as well as an overall picture.
This is a visualisation of the dominant cluster/resident profile per square (100 by 100 metres). In combination with heat maps of the individual clusters/profiles, this provides insight into population distribution, quality of life and possible segregation of a certain type of residents of Eindhoven municipality.
