Population in densely populated areas

The definition of densely populated areas produced by the Finnish Environment Institute is Finland's official definition of densely populated areas used by Statistics Finland in its statistics.
All clusters of buildings with at least 200 inhabitants where the distance between buildings does not exceed 200 metres are defined as localities or urban settlements. In defining localities, not only residential but also business, office and other buildings used as workplaces are taken into account. Administrative regional divisions do not have an effect on the formation of localities.
