This is a list of urban areas in Sweden by population.

The population is measured by Statistics Sweden. The statistics bureau uses the term tätort (locality or urban area), which is defined as a continuous built-up area with a maximum distance of 200 m between residences. The localities are geographical and statistical units, totally independent of the administrative and political subdivision in counties and municipalities.
