Urban centres are defined by the Australian Bureau of Statistics as being a population cluster of 1,000 or more people.[1] For statistical purposes, people living in urban centres are classified as urban. These figures represent the populations of the contiguous built-up areas of each city.

Suburbs of Adelaide are not included, with the exception of Gawler, Mount Barker, Crafers-Bridgewater and Nairne, which can all be seen as semi-rural suburbs but also as separate towns.
