Yes, the problem is Cixi is not a city in Canada (I mean, as far as my research goes, there's no city by the name of Cixi near Vancouver) but in China (near Hangzhou). So the dot is in the wrong place is my point

what makes an urban area legitimate?
+2
Level 87
Sep 1, 2021
The United States Census Bureau defines Urbanized Areas, Metropolitan Statistical Areas, and Combined Statistical Areas.

Urbanized Areas are just that.

MSAs are rather random areas based strictly on counties, whether the county is 600 square kilometers of surrounding populace or 50,000 square kilometers. It may also contain other Urbanized Areas and Urban Clusters (population 5,000 to 49,999) that are geographically remote from the Urbanized Area giving its name to the MSA. It can contain urban population directly part of another Urbanized Area with its own MSA.

These statistics are from the Consolidated Statistical Areas, which are just large market and broadcast areas combining multiple county based MSAs.

The legitimate, official U.S. Census Bureau populations of the Urbanized Areas are:

Stockton: 370,583

Harrisburg: 444,474

I simply cannot believe that Rotterdam is so high on this list. The city itself has 625.000 inhabitans. To come 3.250.000 inhabitans in the urban area you have to at least add The Hague and maybe even Amsterdam which are other cities and shouldnt count.
