There are a number of ways of defining communities and together they make up the interconnected systems of society. Some approaches include:
geographic communities, such as suburbs or towns that are often referred to as "the local communities", communities of interest, identity, or circumstance, such as the business and its various industry sectors and the research communities, the non-profit and voluntary sectors, which are also known as the community sector; ethnic and cultural communities, communities of interest such as those for hobbies, sports or politics, communities of circumstance, such as youth, parenthood, senior citizens or the disabled.
