List of metropolitan areas by population

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

One concept which measures the world's largest cities is that of the metropolitan area, which is based on the concept of a labor market area and is typically defined as an employment core (an area with a high density of available jobs) and the surrounding areas that have strong commuting ties to the core. There is currently no generally accepted, globally consistent definition of exactly what constitutes a metropolitan area, thus making comparisons between cities in different countries especially difficult. However, for consistency, the sources on this article include figures from official governments only.

List

Note: Due to a lack of accurate governmental data, this list is incomplete.
