All with a population of 3, 4, 6...

Are these bed and breakfast type Zimmers?
If so, they should be Hotels (I think).

Thanks,

Tal.

The data has been provided by the local statistical office. These are just very small villages and hamlets. You cannot stay there for the night, they are definitely not hotels. (I am living in the area).

It could be discussed to change the limit of number of population for these records and change the very very small ones to S.HSE instead of P.PPLL

Hi Marc,

Please do change to S.HSE.
To a very distant outsider it just looks silly and confusing.
...and a potential source of bugs (get nearest city from airport X).

Thanks,

Tal.
