Sweden now has nine localities with more than 100 000 inhabitants; Helsingborg is the most recent city to surpass this size class. In 2015 there were 1 979 urban areas in Sweden. This is 23 more than in 2010. Those localities that are included in the statistics are briefly defined as continuous buildings with a maximum of 200 metres between the houses and at least 200 inhabitants. Localities thus include everything from the largest cities to small areas with only 200 inhabitants.
