Previously, place boundaries were used to determine the urban and rural classification of territory outside of UAs; all incorporated places that had at least 2,500 people had all or part (based on the extended city criteria) of their population classified as urban.
Incorporated places in states with strict annexation laws are less likely to annex the densely settled areas that are adjacent to them.
Conversely, incorporated places and CDPs that have a population less than 2,500 may be classified wholly or partially as urban when the population outside the place is inside part of a qualifying UC that reaches the 2,500 population threshold.

Territory, population, and housing units not classified as urban constitute "rural." In the 100-percent data products, "rural" is divided into "places of less than 2,500" and "not in places." The "not in places" category comprises "rural" outside incorporated and census designated places and the rural portions of extended cities.
The urban fringe also includes outlying territory of such density if it was connected to the core of the contiguous area by road and is within 1 1/2 road miles of that core, or within 5 road miles of the core but separated by water or other undevelopable territory.
Other territory with a population density of fewer than 1,000 people per square mile is included in the urban fringe if it eliminates an enclave or closes an indentation in the boundary of the urbanized area.
