The Tucson area is most certainly smaller than the Minneapolis area. Most of the Minneapolis metro population does not even live in the city of Minneapolis, but you can't exclude the entire metro population.

Well okay, I just thought that's what he meant. Some people go by city-proper even if that's strongly discouraged. It might have also been clearer to call it Minneapolis-St. Paul as I think that's the general name for the metropolitan area.
