List of towns and cities in Wales by population

This is a list of localities in Wales by order of population according to the 2001 census data (Table KS01) and from 2010 estimates by the Office for National Statistics. Major urban areas are sub-divided to provide results about localities within them. Sub-divisions often follow the boundaries of local authorities existing before re-organisation in 1974, or the boundaries of current authorities within agglomerations.[1] The figures in this list include only single localities or subdivisions; they are not the population of local authority areas, electoral wards, or urban areas.[2]
