Abstract: The study aims to present the level of urbanization of small towns in Romania, by analyzing some indicators that individualize this category of human settlements. The paper focuses, in the first part, on defining and identifying the small towns within the national urban network and on presenting their characteristics. In the second part, it concentrates on an analysis of elements contained in Law 351/2001 on the approval of the National Territory Arrangement Plan - Section IV Localities Network that define the urban profile of this distinct category of human settlements. Thus, the work took account of quantitative and qualitative elements, as well as labor resources employed in non-agricultural fields, housing equipment with utilities, health, education and culture infrastructure and urban infrastructure equipment assessed at the level of small urban settlements in Suceava County. For the intended purpose, the analysis relied on statistical data of the National Institute of Statistics (statistical records of population and housing censuses in 2002 and 2011, the records from the Statistical Yearbook of Romania 2003, 2007 and 2013 and the Statistical Yearbook of Suceava County 2013, as well as statistical records of Tempo-online database) and on statistical data that were extracted from Sheet village. The analysis was also based on information contained of small urban municipalities sites and strategic documents of these towns, of Suceava County and of the North-East Development Region of Romania of which they belong.
