Particulars:
Sources indicated by "SA" means "Statistisk årsbok"; and "SF" means "Svenska fakta"; VV and NVH are other sources, not further specified by title at this moment.
The alphabetical order of the place names is not in the way of what is common use in Sweden, in these tables the effects of diacritic marks have been neglected.
Included are urban centers with about 20,000 inhabitants or more around the year 1990; most data are of municipalities.
Although there are more towns declared officially by law a "city", or cities possessing town charters, the smaller ones of these cities have been left out of the tables.
In recent years there occured some dissolutions, mergers and also possible name changes of municipalities. Unfortunately, which towns exactly have been effected by these changes are not mentioned in the sources used.
Raptures in the data between the consecutive years may also be caused by the extending of the area of municipalities, thus also absorbing surrounding towns or suburbs.
The data in the column "foundation year" are more precisely years of granting town charters.
