Centrality is a key parameter for defining the collision system size in relativistic heavy-ion collisions.
It provides a tool for selecting events according to cross section in a similar way in different
experiments and with theoretical model calculations.
The progress of centrality determination in Au+Au collisions at
Multi-Purpose Detector (MPD) at the future NICA collider is presented.
The choice of variables used for event classification will be discussed.
