The aim of this paper is to give an account to the problem of commune categories. To achieve this the following points have to be clarified:

  • demonstration of a method of evaluating the commune categories accord-ing to differential factors in the field of spatial structure;
  • definition of spatial differences within communal categories on the basis of structural type of an agglomeration;
  • presentation of long-term development tendencies for the parts of agglom-erations corresponding with spatial differentiation of commune categories.

This research has been conducted in the District of Halle which constitutes a major part of the Halle-Leipzig agglomeration. Possessing nearly all spatial types it is a good object of research in the framework of given themes.
