Comments:Help on this term

The Urban Centres and Localities (UCLs) are designed for the analysis of statistical data, in particular data from the Census of Population and Housing. The 200 minimum population size is set to enable users to access cross classified Census data for these areas without the resulting counts becoming too small for use.
