Mapping Mobility Functional Areas (MFA) using mobile positioning data to inform COVID-19 policies

Source(s):  European Commission Joint Research Centre (JRC)

This work introduces the concept of data-driven Mobility Functional Areas (MFAs) as geographic zones with a high degree of intra-mobility exchanges. Such information, calculated at European regional scale thanks to mobile data, can be useful to inform targeted re-escalation policy responses in cases of future COVID-19 outbreaks (avoiding large-area or even national lockdowns). In such events, the geographic distribution of MFAs would define territorial areas to which lockdown interventions could be limited, with the result of minimising socio-economic consequences of such policies. This work presents a first analysis for 15 European countries (14 EU Member States and Norway).
