The number of inhabitants and jobs are balanced on the scale of Métropole du Grand Paris: 3.9 million jobs for 3.6 million employed people. Approximately 300,000 people living in the metropolis work outside the metropolitan territory but 1 million people working in the metropolis don’t live there. Therefore, the human density which combines housing with place of work involves an average of 134 people per hectare within the metropolis compared with 15 people per hectare in the rest of the Ile-de-France territory. The map shows the human density within the metropolis on the IRIS scale of reference. It is unequally spread over the metropolitan territory. When referring to the maps of population and job density, the most dense areas are central Paris and certain peripheral municipalities. Human density is particularly high, over 1000 people per hectare during the day, who are working or living in central Parisian districts and at La Défense in Hauts-de-Seine.
