List of largest suburbs by population
Largest suburbs worldwide
The following is a table of the largest incorporated suburbs worldwide, with over 700,000 people.
A suburb here is defined as subordinate to a central city from a business or infrastructure sense, and it may or may not have more population than the central city due to arbitrary municipal definitions.
Cities in People's Republic of China are often defined in way as prefectures/counties. Their prefecture/county limits often are physically more extensive than entire metropolitan areas, encompassing large rural areas and outright separate cities. Other definitions of city limits are in actual usage, such as combination of several districts where urban area of the central city is dominant, or roads, railways, natural boundaries, or a combination thereof. Some counties/districts (e.g. Handan County, Handan City(Prefecture level)) are indeed suburbs of their respective central cities (e.g. Congtai,Hanshan,Fuxing districts of Handan City(Prefecture level) are a common definition of true urban area of Handan, although this definition now often also involves Handan County as the city expands), but for simplicity they are excluded from this list.
Coincidentally, a similar scenario applies to Taichung, Tainan and Kaohsiung after they merged with their respective surrounding suburb counties in December 2010, despite they are controlled by Republic of China(Taiwan). Taipei County was also considered merging with Taipei City (and Keelung City) when such proposals were discussed, but instead became a special municipality--New Taipei City on its own. With it's area surrounding Taipei and Keelung City unaltered, the New Taipei City occurs on top of this list.
Also excluded are Transborder agglomerations. In the Pop Date column, C stands for Census, P for provisional result, E for Estimate.
