The Ministry of Regional Development and Public Administration (MRDPA) in Romania launched a large debate in regard to updating the National Territory Plan (PATN). According to Barca (2009) and McCann and Pose (2012) the success of public policies is conditioned by their simultaneous reliance on locations and people. The scope of this paper is to formulate a functional city definition on the background of place-based policy based on the New Geography Economy theory, supported by GIS (Anselin, 2002b, p.5). Our causality chain analysis concluded that the root cause of the public policies is space. We found and show spatial patterns of population, the density of population and population growth rates using ESDA tools choropleth maps (Jenks Classification, equal interval data, Statistical map), maps overlay and spatial correlation analysis at NUTS 5 and 3 level. The tendency is to shrinking wining agglomeration and to expanding the marginalised ones.
