4 Funding Area A Region in Change After London and Paris, the Ruhr Area is Europe‘s third largest metropolitan areaThe region is characterised by structural change - from the former coal and steel district (“Revier“) to an important location for service enterprisesThe Ruhr Area has about 5,4 million inhabitantsThe region‘s economy is still growing at below average rates compared to NRW. Meanwhile, with 116 milliard Euro, the Ruhr Area generates only one fourth of NRW‘s GDP.Structural change is in full swing: more and more persons work in the services sector, less and less in the industrial sector.With 12 percent (2002), the unemployment rate lies above the national average.Strukturwandel im Ruhrgebiet Sozialversicherungspflichtig BeschäftigteQuelle: Bundesanstalt für Arbeit 2002
