Open data for localities

Statistics Sweden delineates localities using a combination of geocoded registers and geospatial information. The data on localities can be freely downloaded as open geodata.

Localities are built-up areas with at least 200 inhabitants. Open geodata is shown as polygons. Until 2015 they were updated once every five years, and since 2016 updates have been made once every three years.
