Population always skewed against Los Angeles.

New York City gets to count all the boroughs as the "city,"which actually contains numerous counties, but LA only gets to count the (relatively small) city. LA County, however, is almost 10 million in population.

What many here do not realize is that Chicago is UP since 2010. The estimates show a marginal loss from 2014-2015. One year of estimated declines does not indicate an exodus or decline.

Chicago is very much a tale of two cities at the moment. You have a healthy core, north side, and near west and south neighborhoods, and struggling neighborhoods pretty much everywhere else.

though NYC is only 305 sq miles with all boroughs included


LA the city is 469 sq miles


LA county is pretty massive land area wise (and by population)

Cool, but UA, MSA, and CSA are all superior metrics.

Other than calculating homicide rates and configuring city budgets, who really even cares about city propers? It seems like a lethargic thing to put any emphasis and value in.

Mostly true but I really didn't know Houston was that close to Chicago and that far in front of Philly....I must not have been paying attention

Is this a thing in LA? You are the second LA poster I have seen talking about this county thing...do LA city lovers really think this is a big deal?

Are you sure you don't have your cities reversed?

LA is geographically much larger than NYC, yet doesn't even have half the population of NYC. If the cities had "equivalent" areas based on size, LA would have a smaller population than Houston.

LA, like almost all Sunbelt cities, has enormous city limits. NYC, like almost all older Northeast/Midwest cities, has rather constrained city limits relative to population.

Meh. The majority of these cities are massive in terms of land area so this list isn't impressive. Minneapolis and St. Paul, which border one another, have a land area of 107 sq miles and now have a population of 711,790. This ranks right behind Charlotte, which is at 298 sq miles. MSP at 298 sq miles has well over a million people.

No, its because this census doesn't account for the downturn.

UA, MSA, CSA along with city proper are all problematic metrics!!! At least the city proper metric is what it is!!!
