The leading regions in the ranking of regional GDP per capita in 2015, after Inner London - West in the United Kingdom (580% of the average), were the Grand Duchy of Luxembourg (264%), Hamburg in Germany (206%) Bruxelles/Brussel in Belgium (205%) and Bratislava in Slovakia (188%). There were 20 regions with GDP per capita 50% or more above the EU average in 2015: five were in Germany, four in the United Kingdom, two each in the Netherlands and Austria, one each in Belgium, the Czech Republic, Denmark, France, Slovakia and Sweden, as well as the Grand Duchy of Luxembourg. After Severozapaden in Bulgaria (29% of the average), the lowest regions in the ranking were Mayotte in France (32%), Severen tsentralen and Yuzhen tsentralen in Bulgaria (both 33%) and Nord-Est in Romania (34%). Among the 19 regions with GDP per capita below 50% of the EU average, five were in Bulgaria, four each in Hungary and Poland, three in Romania, two in Greece and one in France. It should be noted, however, that in some regions the GDP per capita figures can be significantly influenced by commuter flows. Net commuter inflows in these regions push up production to a level that could not be achieved by the resident active population on its own. There is a corresponding effect in regions with commuter outflows.
