Transformation tables for administrative borders in Germany – data

In order to demonstrate what kind of information the available tables contain and how they are structured, the Research Data Centre of the IWH provides selected excerpts as freely available PDF files below. Please note that the files provided upon application are in Excel format.

These files show how the territorial states of districts and municipalities of Saxony-Anhalt in 1990 can be allocated to administrative entities in 2015. The tables detail whether a specific entity (district or municipality) was merged with another entity, split up and (partly) allocated to other entities or stayed the same. The column “Anteil_Prozent” states how much of the population was allocated to (or from) the entity in the same line.

In addition the these files covering administrative changes over the whole available period (1990-2015), the RDC-IWH also provides data on shorter intervals during this time, as well as files covering year-to-year changes. These tables isolate the changes due to individual territorial reforms, such as the “Kreisreform Sachsen-Anhalt 2007”, a territorial reform that reduced the number of administrative districts in Saxony-Anhalt from 21 to 11 in 2007. Example files covering this reform are provided below.

What can a town achieve today? Integration, urban regimes, and the acceptance of models

Peter Franz

in: IWH Discussion Papers, No. 56, 1997

Abstract

Since 1990, the date of German reunification, urban development and especially the recovery of inner cities in East Germany has been delayed by several factors including real estate restitution claims, inflexible preservation codes for historic buildings, and the shortage of stores for retailers. This blockade situation has resulted in the quick and intensified development of shopping centres as „inner city substitutes“ on the urban periphery. The combined effect of the factors preventing revitalisation strategies and the newly realised and practised potential for autonomous action by the authorities of smaller municipalities was a severe restriction for the governing capacities of the authorities of the larger cities. in regaining their governance capability city governments are dependent on urban groups joining and supporting public developmental strategies. In accordance with Stone (1993) and Stoker and Mossberger (1994) urban groups active in urban development policy can be described as urban regimes. In Germany three types of regimes can be differentiated. The cities differ with respect to the political strength and the forms of coalition and conflict between different urban regimes. Specific conditions in East Germany have led to a special regime constellation with a powerful „conservation regime“ on the one hand and a vivid „globalisation regime“ on the other hand. This conflicting constellation results in a developmental blockade. The hypothesis is that a third regime type, the „local alliance“, is missing and still has to be created by practices such as city marketing and city management. Only when this regime building process has advanced will new constellations of political coalitions and compromise become possible and be able to reduce governance problems of city government in the long run.

Problems with infrastructural renovation in East German big cities – The example of Halle (Saale)

Peter Franz

in: Wirtschaft im Wandel, No. 10, 1996

Abstract

Der Erneuerungsprozess der Infrastruktur in Ostdeutschland wird zu einem erheblichen Teil von den Kommunen getragen. Befunde für die Stadt Halle (Saale) aus den Bereichen Abwasser, Trinkwasser und Gas zeigen, wie dieser Prozess vorangekommen ist und welcher weiterer Investitionsbedarf besteht. Dabei wirken die hoch belasteten kommunalen Straßennetze als Flaschenhals für die Erneuerung von Leitungssystemen und sind Ausgangspunkt sich beschleunigender Verschleißzyklen.

Inner cities fall behind and "greenfield sites" develop dynamically – Consequences of trade establishments in East German urban regions

Peter Franz

in: Wirtschaft im Wandel, No. 13, 1996

Abstract

Eine vergleichende Untersuchung von vier ostdeutschen Stadtregionen zeigt, dass sich der Handel seit 1990 massiv außerhalb der Innenstädte niedergelassen hat. Diese Ansiedlungsdynamik hat zu einer Abwertung innerstädtischer und zu einer Aufwertung peripherer Standorte geführt und die angestrebte revitalisierung der Innenstädte bisher stark behindert. Im Hinblick auf das Spanungsfeld von Innenstadt und Umland werden drei Pfade zukünftiger Stadtentwicklung unterschieden, deren Beeinflussung jeweils einen unterschiedlichen Einsatz und Zuschnitt politischer Maßnahmen erfordern.

Emigration tendencies into the surrounding areas of East German cities: The examples of Halle and Leipzig

Peter Franz

in: Wirtschaft im Wandel, No. 11, 1995

Abstract

In Ostdeutschland haben Suburbanisierungsprozesse eingesetzt, die auch in der Region Halle-Leipzig von einer wachsenden Dynamik gekennzeichnet sind. Bei weiter zunehmender Abwanderung ins Umland sind vermehrt Verkehrsprobleme, zunehmende soziale Segregation in den Großsiedlungen sowie politische Konflikte zwischen Kernstadt und Umlandgemeinden zu erwarten.
