(UA)–Urbanized Areas are defined by the US Census Bureau "to provide a better separation of urban and rural territory, population, and housing in the vicinity of large places". A complete explanation of UA's, and of the criteria for delineating them, can be found on the Census Bureau's http://www.census.gov/population/censusdata/urdef.txt web site. These Urbanized Areas are used, by both government and private agencies, as a basis for determining whether specified locations ought to be considered urban (within a UA) or rural (not within any UA).
