Notes: Urban areas have been defined starting with the Office of the Deputy Prime Minister’s areas of urban land use – areas in England and Wales of at least 20 hectares in extent identified using a tangible bricks-and-mortar approach. Major urban areas and others with more than one central focus are divided where possible to produce figures about localities within them. Previously separate urban areas, where urban land has merged, are also recognised by subdivisions where possible. Subdivisions often follow the boundaries of local authorities existing before reorganisation in 1974, or the boundaries of current authorities within urban areas.
