This is a list of the five most populous incorporated places in each U.S. state by population, as of the 2010 United States Census. State capitals are designated in italics.
Outside of Hawaii and Maryland, census-designated places (CDPs) are excluded.
Census-designated places on the list
Note 1: The only incorporated place in Hawaii is the City & County of Honolulu. A portion of it, the Honolulu District, is sometimes regarded as the "city" for statistical purposes, although it has no government separate from that of the City and County as a whole. The U.S. Census Bureau defines Honolulu CDP (census-designated place) to coincide with the Honolulu District. Thus for Hawaii, the largest CDPs are ranked.
Though Maryland has a number of incorporated places, most major population centers are census-designated places. For a list of incorporated places, see List of incorporated places in Maryland.
