They might be a hike from the Loop, but they're very much apart of Chicagoland, and I have yet to meet someone from either place who considers themselves to not be from the Chicago area.
I'd agree. Driving on south on 55, once you get pastJoliet, that's when you really feel like you've "left" Chicagoland; a little less so on 88 west past Aurora (there's still Dekalb), but it's still a pretty strong demarcation.

Considering actual municipalities, DC isn't too far behind; outside of DC itself, Alexandria is the only incorporated municipality over 100K in the MSA.

I don't know, but if Tucson and Las Vegas are large enough, they pretty much fit the bill here.

Actually for Philly Reading PA would be the largest satellite city with about 90K or about 5.5% the population, Allentown would be larger but was moved to the NYC CSA from Philly historically. Not sure what these mean as most municipalities are really small (land wise) in this area outside the core city

I should probably know that since I'm from Central Jersey originally I tried my best and used census estimates for the numbers but by no means is it perfect.
