The main purpose of the survey is to produce statistics on the urbanisation rate. A locality consists of a group of buildings normally not more than 200 metres apart from each other, and must fulfil a minimum criterion of having at least 200 inhabitants. Delimitation of localities is made by Statistics Sweden every five years.
The statistics provide figures regarding areas, population and urban structures of localities.
The majority, or 86 percent of Sweden's employed persons work in one of the country's nearly 2 000 localities. Stockholm County has the most employed persons in an urban area, at 91 percent. Gotland County has the lowest share at 73 percent.
