Infobox[edit]

There seems to be a problem with the infobox. In normal view the infobox displays an obsolete number as far as the population is concerned. When you edit the infobox you see, however, that the current population figures have been added already. How can that be? --Maxl (talk) 19:08, 24 January 2016 (UTC)

Since the infobox template has "Gemeindeschlüssel = 09 1 62 000" as a parameter, it is accessing Template:Population Germany for the population data. If you drill down from there, Template:Metadata Population DE-BY includes "09162000 = 1407836", which is where the "old" figure is coming from. This is supposed to be updated from the German Wikipedia, but does not appear to have been updated since 2013-12-31. The update procedure is described on Template:Population Germany, but I can't quite follow it - I don't see the obvious source files on de.wiki. It is certainly confusing that the template does not complain if the number is specified in both places. Rwessel (talk) 05:19, 25 January 2016 (UTC)

List of largest employers faulty[edit]

Although it gives a source, the list of the largest employers in Munich is faulty. It doesn't make sense that the smaller Technichal University of Munich should have >9000 employers, while the larger Ludwig-Maximilian Universität doesn't even make the list. Both universities are state-run, so that can't be the issue.

Sure enough, the Wikipedia entry lists >16.000 employees for the LMU (the German page lists 6000 without the university hospital and >10.000 for the university hospital - note that such a distinction is not shown for the Technical University, which also has a hospital). It gets worse, because not all of the employees are actually employed in Munich, since especially the Technical University has a majority of institutes in Garching (not Munich) and Weihenstephan (Freising, not Munich).

Next, the airport seems weird. It's not in Munich, so do we count only the people working there who actually come from Munich? Then the number is approximately correct according to [[1]], but all those people work for many different employers at the airport. That seems weird. If we count any other way, the numbers are just plain wrong.

Other firms not listed but which could make the list include infineon: If the technical university fits the list, although most of its people work outside Munich (and many of those also live outside of Munich), then why not count infineon with 3300 employees at Neubiberg near Munich? 217.84.236.226 (talk) 23:49, 15 July 2016 (UTC)
