Localities; areas, population

The statistics show the urban land area, population, structure of buildings, and employed day population. An urban area has contiguous buildings with no more than 200 metres between houses and at least 200 residents. Statistics Sweden separates urban areas geographically and then calculates statistics for each urban area.
