As of Census 2010, there were 29,514 cities/places in the United States. The interactive ranking table provided below shows the population and housing units for the 1990 Census, 2000 Census and 2010 Census for cities/places defined as of Census 2010. "Places" refers to incorporated cities as well as Census Designated Places (CDPs). CDPs are areas defined by the Census Bureau for statistical purposes and have no legal powers. Only places defined as of Census 2010 are included. If the place did not exist as of 1990 or 2000, the 1990 and 2000 columns show a zero value.

Illustrative GIS/mapping applications focused on educational attainment, patterns of economic prosperity and population distribution by census block are shown in the Gallery section. A partial list of city/school district Gallery sections may be accessed using the links shown in the scroll area at the right.

Use the ranking table to view the largest places in 1990, 2000 or 2010 or places experiencing largest change. Apply a query/select a state to view places in a selected state. Click a column header on a subject of interest; click a second time to sort in the other direction.

Land and water areas are less accurate for 2000 than for 2010. Land and water areas are less accurate for 1990 than 2000. Very small differences in area measurements may not indicate the size of the place changed from census to census. The area measurements are provided to reflect any possible large change in the area of the place.
