    <description descriptionType="Abstract">&lt;p&gt;This dataset provides information on demographic variables related to population and employment as well as land use/land cover share on the basis of local administrative units (LAU). Within the BIOPLAT-EU project, this information is integrated into the webGIS&amp;nbsp; sustainability assessment tool.&lt;br&gt;
Main source of the administrative unit geometries is the spatial data set of local administrative units (LAU) (2016) provided by the European Commission ( The data set was extended by Level 2 administrative boundaries of Albania ( and Level 3 administrative boundaries of Ukraine as of 2017 (;/p&gt;

&lt;p&gt;Data on demography (2016) for LAU + Albania was acquired using the Eurostat statistical database ( To calculate land use share for LAU and Albania, Corine Land cover (CLC) data from 2018 was used ( CLC classes were summarized into the following classes: urban areas (UrAr), forest (Fo), permanent crops (PeCr), annual crops (AnCr), permanent meadows and pastures (PeMaPa), industrial sites (InSi), water and wetlands (We), others (Ot).&lt;/p&gt;

&lt;p&gt;For Ukraine data on demography provided by the State Statistics Survey of Ukraine ( . To calculate land use share per administrative unit, the land use map produced by Myroniuk et al. 2020 ( was used. Based to this map shares of the following land use classes are calculated: urban areas (UrAr), forest (Fo), annual and permanent cropland (AnPeCr), grassland (Gra), water and wetlands (We), others (Ot).&lt;/p&gt;
