Largest cities in the Americas

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jump to: navigation, search

This is a list of the 50 largest cities in the Americas by population. Official definitions of cities are defined according to the concept of city proper, which is the territory within the city limits. The list ranks the world's urban municipal units (or well-defined statistical groupings of such units) according to population. Note that the populations listed are for the city proper and not for the urban area nor the metropolitan area. For the 50 largest metro areas in the Americas, see List of metropolitan areas in the Americas by population.
