Only the 250 largest cities were considered. With population of 180,000 or greater. Monaco has a population of only 37,000. NYC when considering urban area only ranks 114 on the list, San Francisco 104. I'm not sure why Hong Kong is not listed. I might add it.

I don't think Macau is considered a city, at least in this context.
