##Cities of the United States The United States Census designates populated regions of the country as 'incorporated places.' An incorporated place in the United States includes cities, towns, villages and municipalities, among other designations. As of 2015, there are over 300 incorporated places in the United States that have a population that exceeds 100,000, which is a pretty sizable increase over the 285 recorded in 2012.

According to data from the US Census Bureau, a total of 10 US cities have a population that has surpassed the 1 million milestone. Of these 10 cities, California and Texas account for 60%, with each being home to three cities each that have a population of over 1 million. Texas also has the distinction of having the most fastest-growing cities with a total of six out of the top 13. Also, half of the top ten cities with the largest population gains were located in Texas, although the city that gained the most new residents throughout 2013 and 2014 was New York City, which is also the most populous in the country.

The United States has a population that is spread throughout its largest metropolitan areas, including New York City, Chicago and Los Angeles, as well as its suburban areas found in less populated states. After the economic collapse and high unemployment numbers, the population of US cities of all sizes is expected to noticeably bounce back as the economy has become more stabilized. Foreign immigration is also expected to contribute to future growth of cities of all sizes, including the largest cities in the country.

United States has 13 cities with more than a million people, 293 cities with between 100,000 and 1 million people, and 3863 cities with between 10,000 and 100,000 people. The largest city in United States is New York City, with a population of 8,175,133 people.
