We have compiled the most complete compact and ultracompact H II region catalogue to date via

850 µm survey to identify massive star forming clumps in the outer Galaxy (RGC > 8.5 kpc)

For the inner Galaxy sample (RGC < 8.5 kpc), we adopt the compact H II regions from previous

depending on the location within the Galactic plane. We present a new UC H II region catalogue

regions and 445 host clumps. We examine the distance independent values of NLy/M and

respectively. We find a significant trend showing that Lbol/M decreases with increasing RGC,

suggesting that the overall star formation per unit mass is less in the outer Galaxy.
