The administrative centre is the town of Odda, which is also the main commercial and economic centre of the entire Hardanger region. Other villages in the municipality include Botnen, Eitrheim, Håra, Røldal, Seljestad, Skare, and Tyssedal.
The 1,616-square-kilometre (624 sq mi) municipality is the 42nd largest by area out of the 422 municipalities in Norway. Odda is the 150th most populous municipality in Norway with a population of 7,025. The municipality’s population density is 4.8 inhabitants per square kilometre (12/sq mi) and its population has decreased by 1.8% over the last decade.
The new municipality of Odda was established on 1 July 1913 when the southern district of Ullensvangwas separated out to form its own municipality.
The municipality (originally the parish) is named after the old “Odda” farm (Old Norse: Oddi), since the first Odda Church was built there. The name is identical with the word oddi which means “headland”
