### Obs:

Localities situated in more than one municipality or county, will be registrated with the municipality or county where the main part of the locality is situated.
Locality references The localities that Lantmäteriet presents in the basic geodata and on general maps can sometimes differ from Statistics Sweden´s locality boundaries. Statistics Sweden´s localities are intended to be a basis for statistics, while the purpose of Lantmäteriet´s locality boundaries is to provide a basis for maps in different scales. Therefore the names that are presented in Statistics Sweden´s statistics should not be regarded as established names of localities, but as references that are representative for the marked areas, that is, a locality of Statistics Sweden. The basis for the reference is the map material from Lantmäteriet. In 2017, several locality references have been changed according to decisions of Lantmäteriet.
Locality

Since 1960 Statistics Sweden has defined areas with continuous buildings and a population of at least 200 inhabitants. Localities thus include everything from the largest cities to small areas with only 200 inhabitants. Statistics Sweden does not have its own definition of sparsely populated areas or countryside areas. Population Information about the population is based on the Total Population Register. It includes information about registered persons per property on 31 December of the current year. As of 2018, population in urban areas is calculated using data linked to addresses. Land area

Land area is presented in the table. It is calculated as the total area minus the water area. The real estate map of Lantmäteriet (the Swedish mapping, cadastral and land registration authority) with the scale 1:10 000 is used when calculating water areas. All areas have been calculated in SWREF99 TM, spherical method. One hectare is 10 000 square metres, or 0.01 m2, that is, the area of a square measuring 100 m x 100 m. Two dots (..) mean that value is missing since the area is not classified as a statistical locality at the time.
