The leading regions in the ranking of regional GDP per capita in 2014, after Inner London - West in the United Kingdom (539% of the average), were the Grand Duchy of Luxembourg (266%), Bruxelles/Brussel in Belgium (207%), Hamburg in Germany (206%), Inner London - East in the United Kingdom (204%) and Bratislava in Slovakia (186%). There were 21 regions with GDP per capita 50% or more above the EU average: five were in Germany, three each in the Netherlands and the United Kingdom, two in Austria, one each in Belgium, the Czech Republic, Denmark, Ireland, France, Slovakia and Sweden, as well as the Grand Duchy of Luxembourg. After Severozapaden in Bulgaria (30%) the lowest regions in the ranking were Mayotte in France (31%), Yuzhen tsentralen (32%) and Severen tsentralen (34%) in Bulgaria and Nord-Est in Romania (34%). Among the 21 regions with GDP per capita below 50% of the EU average, five each were in Bulgaria, Poland and Romania, four in Hungary, and one each in Greece and 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.
