The following is a list of the most populous incorporated places of the United States. As defined by the United States Census Bureau, an "incorporated place" includes a variety of designations, including city, town, village, borough, and municipality. A few exceptional census-designated places (CDPs) are also included in the Census Bureau's listing of incorporated places. Consolidated city-counties represent a distinct type of government that includes the entire population of a county, or county equivalent. Some consolidated city-counties, however, include multiple incorporated places. This list presents only that portion (or "balance") of such consolidated city-counties that are not a part of another incorporated place. This list refers only to the population of individual municipalities within their defined limits; the populations of other municipalities considered suburbs of a central city are listed separately, and unincorporated areas within urban agglomerations are not included. Therefore, a different ranking is evident when considering U.S. metropolitan area populations.

50 states and District of Columbia

The following table lists the 314 incorporated places in the United States (excluding the U.S. territories) with a population of at least 100,000 on July 1, 2019, as estimated by the United States Census Bureau. Five states—Delaware, Maine, Vermont, West Virginia and Wyoming—have no cities with populations of 100,000 or more. The table below contains the following information: # The city rank by population as of July 1, 2019, as estimated by the United States Census Bureau # The city name # The name of the state in which the city lies # The city population as of July 1, 2019, as estimated by the United States Census Bureau # The city population as of April 1, 2010, as enumerated by the 2010 United States Census # The city percent population change from April 1, 2010, to July 1, 2019 # The city land area as of January 1, 2016 # The city population density as of July 1, 2016 (residents per unit of land area) # The city latitude and longitude coordinates

Distribution

For cities with populations of 100,000 or more, the following distributions hold. Smaller incorporated places are not included. The mean density is . The median is . The total population (2019 estimate) of all cities over 100,000 is 95,467,976. The total land area (2019 estimate) of all cities over 100,000 is . The overall density (total population divided by total land area 019 is . The mean city population is 301,160. The median city in population is number 185 (Syracuse) at 142,380.

Puerto Rico

The following table lists the five municipalities (''municipios'') of Puerto Rico with a population greater than 100,000 on July 1, 2019, as estimated by the United States Census Bureau. The table below contains the following information: # The municipio rank by population as of July 1, 2019, as estimated by the United States Census Bureau # The municipio # The municipio population as of July 1, 2019, as estimated by the United States Census Bureau # The municipio population as of April 1, 2010, as enumerated by the 2010 United States Census # The municipio percent population change from April 1, 2010, to July 1, 2019 # The municipio land area as of January 1, 2016 # The municipio population density as of July 1, 2019 (residents per land area) # The municipio latitude and longitude coordinates

Census-designated places

The following table lists U.S. census-designated places (CDPs) with populations of at least 100,000 according to the 2010 Census. A CDP is a concentration of population identified by the United States Census Bureau for statistical purposes. CDPs are delineated for each decennial census as the statistical counterparts of incorporated places such as cities, towns and villages. CDPs are populated areas that lack separate municipal government, but which otherwise physically resemble incorporated places. Unlike the incorporated cities in the main list, the US Census Bureau does not release annual population estimates for CDPs. The table below contains the following information: # The census-designated place # The state # The city population as of April 1, 2010, as enumerated by the 2010 United States Census # The city population as of April 1, 2000, as enumerated by the 2010 United States Census # The city percent population change from April 1, 2000, to April 1, 2010 # The city land area as of January 1, 2010 # The city population density as of April 1, 2010 (residents per land area) # The city ANSI INCITS 446–2008 geographic code # The city latitude and longitude coordinates

Cities formerly over 100,000 people

The following table lists U.S. cities that, in past censuses, have had populations of at least 100,000 but have since decreased beneath this threshold or have been consolidated with or annexed into a neighboring city. The table below contains the following information: # Name of city # Name of state # The city population as of July 1, 2019, as estimated by the United States Census Bureau # The city's peak population based on highest official enumeration recorded by the Census (and the year of that particular Census) # The numeric decline in population from its peak Census count to the most recent Census estimate in 2018. # The percent decline in population from its peak Census count to the most recent Census estimate in 2018. # Any additional notes of significant importance.
