oh . this has been discussed many times.
for london some say 12; 14; 18 in the metro. (i think 12 or 14 is more accurate).
Paris is right: 11.5 i think.
Moscow i heard has more because of rapid growth.

18 million for London must be including all of southeast England.

That's just as bad as NYC's 21.8 million figure, which includes counties all the way in Pennsylvania!

UN Urban Area numbers are probably more uniform and reasonable.

They are quite correct numbers.

London metro is about 12, 18 is the economic area and 22 is South East England. Moscow I think included now also most of its suburbs outside the ring motorway that was once its border and has 13mio within the city proper (but I am also not sure).

Shanghai: it is a municipality of 6000 km2 and has some 13mio in it, but not all in the urban area which is between 9 and 12.

Quite well defined since the 40s I think is Sao Paulo: city proper (about 1600 km2): 10.2mio, metro (Grande Sao Paulo, ca 8000 km2 - Santos and Campinas NOT included): 18.5 mio.

It's because the metro area of New York City actually spreads over three states : New York, but Connecticut and New Jersey too.

New York City metropolitan area occupied a large part of the Eastern New Jersey State.
the Newark Airport, the Giant Stadium...are both in New Jersey.
also a part of Connecticut is part of the NY Metropolitan area.

about LA, the metropolitan area is composed by 3 County, not only th LA County.
the Orange County and the San Bernardino Valley are part of the MA of LA.

In EUorpe something of similar happened in Italy, in Milano, where the city have only 1.4 Millions, but the MA have more than 7 Millions that are for an half part outside the Milano Province (similar to the USA County), and a small number in another Country, in the Canton Ticino, the souther part of Swiss.

a similar thing happened also with Basel, a city on the French, Swiss and German border and with the MA of Lille/Roubaix in French and Belgie

For the Usa Census Boureau in the 2003 LA have 12,829,272 in the Metropolitan Area, and 17,262,730 in the Combined Metropolitan Area.
California have 35,484,453 (July 2003), so:
Los Angeles 17,262,730
San Francisco 7,154,350
San Diego 2,930,886
Sacramento 1,974,810

so more than 29.000.000 of Californian inhabitants live in the 4 biggest cities of the State. the other 6 Millions live in the small city or in the village.
nothing of unusual, cause California is a State with an high level of urbanisation. few people live in isolated areas.

New York
18,640,775 in the Metropolitan Area.
21,578,930 in the Combined Metropolitan Area.


btw...Vegas is in another State: Nevada.
and Nevada have 2,241,154 inhabitants that for MORE than an half part live in only one city: Las Vegas - 1,576,541.
