List of cities proper by population

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

A city proper is a locality defined according to legal or political boundaries and an administratively recognised urban status that is usually characterised by some form of local government.[1][2][3] In some cases, cities proper may not include suburbs or even parts of the urban core whereas in other cases the boundaries may include non-contiguous urban settlements or even rural areas.[4]

World Urbanization Prospects, a UN publication, defines the population of a city proper as "the population living within the administrative boundaries of a city or controlled directly from the city by a single authority." The book continues to say that "city proper as defined by administrative boundaries may not include suburban areas where an important proportion of the population working or studying in the city lives."[4] The UN also employs two alternative definitions of cities that use arbitrarily defined boundaries (urban area and metropolitan area) since no single definition for a city can be applied to compare every settlement. Using the administrative definition, many cities will be smaller than their urban area. In contrast, many Chinese cities govern territories that extend well beyond the traditional "city proper" into suburban and rural areas.[5]
