Population of settlements

Population of settlements

Settlements are groups of high density postcodes whose combined population exceeds 500. There are 516 settlements in Scotland (as at 2012). Localities, similarly to settlements, are also groups of high density of postcodes, however, they tend to be smaller (as at 2012 there are 643 distinctive localities in Scotland).

The tables below illustrate populations in Clackmannanshire settlements and localities.
