Another idea: When linking DBPedia administrative regions to NUTS codes I sometimes see population numbers in the DBPedia resources, but they are of low quality. I can provide the newest Eurostat numbers for them. And again; what should the predicate be?

Best regards,
Søren Roug

|| I'll contribute some links to a vocabulary of NUTS codes. The Nomenclature of
|| Territorial Units for Statistics [1] is a hierarchial organisation of
|| administrative regions in Europe. It is heavily used by Eurostat, and LOD2 has
|| converted the Eurostat datasets to RDF.
|| 
|| The word hierarchial lead me to my question. Would it be useful to contribute
|| links to DBPedia that link two DBPedia resources together in a hierarchy, and
|| what should the predicate be? SKOS broader/narrower seems to me to have
|| too
|| little semantic information about what kind of relationship it is. I.e. that
|| it is a spatial form of broader/narrower.
